Static site generator on Ember


#1

Hi! I’d been searching static-site generator on embers and it turned out there are no mature solutions within ember community. I found https://github.com/robwebdev/ember-cli-staticboot but it has very limited functionality.

If you try something like Nuxt.js you’ll see what I mean.

My questions are:

  1. Does ember team plan to make static site generator?
  2. Are authors of ember-cli-staticboot going to continue active development?
  3. Do you know any other solutions?
  4. Do you think people actually need full-featured static site generator on Ember?

PS. I’ve tried https://github.com/ef4/prember and it works like a charm. Website loads really fast! Thanks for advice gyus! Example website here http://mf-ember.surge.sh/

I think cdn’s like cloudflare do a good job speeding things up. See the example https://bloggr.exmer.com/ that is accessed via cloudflare. The Ember app is coming direct from a relatively slow CouchDB database on https://martinic.couchcluster.com/bloggr See also ember-service-worker to speed things up for the second time. So I would not invest in a full-featured static site generator myself.

Agreed. Also anulman/hyde builds on top of prember.

Thanks! This is interesting tool as well!

Very cool, to find this as I was dreaming about doing this as soon as I installed prember. However, does anyone know if I can use prember to output static files without Ember core linkages (eg. to vendor.css or including any ember files)?

Just looking to use all the goodness of ember but keep static pages super lean (or no .js at all).
