Sometime back, a friend suggested that I make a website that lists all the projects I’ve started working on but somehow never had the time to finish.
“Wouldn’t it be funny if that website ended up being unfinished as well?” he said.
Well, I’ve gotten it up with the help of Publii, a static website builder that I’ve been meaning to test out. Killing two birds with one stone!
(If interested, you can view my In Progress website: here.)
So far, I like it. If you’re looking to get some content up really quickly, it’s a great tool. With just a little customisation, you can get something decent up in under 30 minutes.
The other thing that’s great about it is that it’s a desktop app, which means that you can work offline. And then, with just the click of a button, push the website online later.
The user interface is pretty easy to use and looks good as well.
It also has some SEO tools built in, which, if you know what you’re doing, makes it super easy to optimise. Site speed is great too.
On the other hand, if you don’t know how to code but want to create your own designs, you may want to look at another CMS option like Webflow.
In the meantime, I’ll see how I like Publii in the coming weeks.
