I stumbled across this tool by accident and I decided to use it for my blog - the low level of dependencies was key and speed of build.
I am previously using gatsby and my experience with zola so far is excellent - I got started with the abridged theme and moving my markdown from gatsby was so easy - I needed to change front matter for search but didn’t have to change the content.
I need to amend the styling a little but amazed at how well this went so far. I have around 60 pages with images and code and it built in 3 seconds on my machine (WSL - 4 year old dell xps).
I’m liking the abridged theme too - this probably made the experience easier for me. I’m happy this is much less complicated than gatsby.
Thanks to developers for making my life easier.
