Well - I just used Jigsaw to build this site. I started at 6:30 AM, and at the time of writing, it’s 7:28 AM on March 25th, 2020.
If you’re already comfortable with Laravel, Jigsaw is by far the easiest static-site generation tool I’ve played with so far - I’ve tried a few like Gatsby, and Nuxt, and I think they are awesome, but if you’re a PHP dev at heart, Jigsaw is goign to be an easier go for you.
This website (davidhallin.com) is totally open-source. You can take a look at the repo here github.com/hallindavid/davidhallin
I pushed this website to GitHub pages - which is free hosting for static websites that are open-source.
For just 1 hour of work I think it’s pretty decent to have a blog themed, all the basic info added, and pushed to production hosting with SSL.
