Switching to a setup with static site generators


Would love to see in article going into details on how to move from an existing setup (e.g. WordPress) to exporting and migrating data to a static site generator-based setup.

    I’d like to see this article be a different from other articles about ssg’s. How to use ssg's has been discussed all over. I’d like to see a practical article that shows one or more strategies using a typical and a more complex wordpress site (no simple blogs out of the box) and exporting that to a static site. Best workflows, pitfalls, etc. And what if you have a small woocommerce part? Some plugins exist to do this, none of them seem to work really well or have an inefficient workflow.

    I think this would be a great topic. A lot of people use CMS's like WordPress and Drupal, so maybe a real-world example of migrating to Jekyll ( or Hugo (

    Also, I know Jekyll has an "admin panel" gem (, so maybe go into detail on how you can better manage content and users using static site generators.

    I use WordPress for my sites & blogs. I am very interested in static sites based on ReactJS or similar site generators.
