Hydrogen – light static-site generator built with TypeScript

Hydrogen is a lightweight static site generator.

It uses fire lit-html inspired templating for super duper performant template generation. Hydrogen is fast because it uses plain JavaScript as a template engine.

This is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Millisecond Builds. With the global average attention span being 8 seconds, why wait seconds for your builds when you can wait milliseconds.
  • JavaScript Templates. With ES6 template literals, who needs template engines like pug and handlebars. You now have access to the full-power of a JavaScript.
  • Use External APIs. Plug into your data with remote APIs.
  • Powerful Metadata API. Get the best SEO for your static pages.
  • Build Hooks. Customize the build process to fit your needs
  • Service Worker friendly. Build powerful offline-first experiences
