static site generator:jekyll

Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory (representing the raw form of a website), runs it through Textile or Markdown and Liquid converters, and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server. This is also the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host your project’s page or blog right here from GitHub.

在github pages上使用还可以配置cname绑定域名,现在的elasticsearch项目站点就是这么做的,简单方便省维护,不过加载稍微有一点点慢,不过应付小型的静态站点应该可以说是完美。
