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.
