With projects like Gatsby continuing to grow, the static site generator trend does not seem to be going anywhere. While Gatsby can play nice with Drupal (this site being an example,) the process could be a little easier. As a result, I was happy to see the announcement of Tome yesterday.
Tome is a self described "static site generator lovingly crafted with Drupal 8." I think having a solid Drupal-only alternative could be really useful for folks who aren't ready to dive into something like React in order to use Gatsby. I ran through the getting started tutorial and while I did run into an issue with generated images, I was impressed with what I saw so far.
