Static site generators for blogs and similar ad-ladden static “content” is the hot shit for years now. Probably because it’s a simple enough task to tackle with even superficial knowledge of the language du jour. Because of that and the number of people hosting their own photos being in the low single digits, static site generators for photo galleries are not a hot topic. For years, I have used Sigal and even contributed a few patches here and there. Color me surprised when I updated to the latest version and learned that I had to update my carefully crafted theme and configuration to continue using that. Well, not with me! I am stupid enough to use my superficial knowledge of Rust to come up with splat, an alternative static site generator that will never break themes. Promised 🤞
