This looks great. I've been using Vue for a while now (I used it to build Freezetab), and was considering moving to React for static sites because of Gatsby, but it looks like I won't have to πŸ˜….

@ksbrooksjr you also have Nuxt thats handled static sites before VuePress came out :) Vue's eco-system is growing really quick and really good

Vuepress was a breeze to work with so far. I used vuepress for two projects to far.

What is the most valuable thing, is that I can add custom elements in the middle of markdown and embed interactive snippets.

Pros:

runs on web technology

minimalistic

easy to adapt

easily implement interactive UI in the middle of markdown

Cons:

SEO and blogging support are not built in yet

No built-in metadata/opengraph/favicon support

@ Plainflow.com we're big fan of Vue.js over React because of how much smaller and simpler it is. VuePress looks interesting. We strove to find a good seamless static site generator until for our public product documentation until we decided to go for Jekyll. PRO of using something like this instead of Hugo/Jekyll: - Both of those lack support for custom "sources", instead of just markdown files. CONS: - SPAs and SEO aren't still good friends. ---- Edit: thanks @adamwathan. Docsify was a Vue powered doc generator that wasn't SEO friendly at all. I got somehow tricked. :) Here's the link, VuePress is SEO compliant https://vuepress.vuejs.org/guide...

@leonardofed Vuepress sites are fully server-rendered so they are perfectly SEO friendly, one of the big goals of the project as far as I understand in fact. It's only an SPA after first page load for snappier performance πŸ‘πŸ» >Each page generated by VuePress has its own pre-rendered static HTML, p roviding great loading performance and is SEO-friendly. Once the page is loaded, however, Vue takes over the static content and turns it into a full Single-Page Application (SPA). Additional pages are fetched on demand as the user navigates around the site.

Interesting stuff! I’m a big fan of Nuxt, so I’m interested to see how we can leverage this to good effect.
