The focus should actually be on creating an environment for easy article writing. However, the situation tends to become over-engineered.
I have been thinking and researching about blogging for a while now. At this point, like everyone else, I initially researched static site generators and was using Zola, which is written in Rust, a language that interests me. However, I looked into other environments because Zola seemed insufficient for adding new features. My requirements are:
- Markdown support
- Multi-language support
- Ability to work on Edge (functions, etc.)
- Written in a language in which I can develop
- Simple and understandable documentation
When I looked into other options, each one was eliminated for a different reason. Third-party solutions like Notion, Blogger, and Medium were also among the places I gave up on, as I wouldn't have full control and the ability to deploy to my desired location easily. If you're not concerned about the technology aspect, my suggestion would have been Blogger, as you can use it indefinitely without worrying about the technicalities if you're okay with their content rules.
If you know of any other environment that meets the above criteria, I would appreciate it if you could let me know.
If there is anything you would like me to add or correct on the blog, please let me know.
