* Cooking with wok

Making a website is easier than ever, but tools like Wordpress, Drupal, and Blogger are often overkill for the simple sites that we want to make. Dynamic sites require resources on every page load, and most of the time the extra efforts are wasted since the site doesn’t change very often. To solve this problem, tools like Jekyll, Hyde, and Nanoc, providing tools like templates and formatting. This session is about wok, a static generator I stated created because I didn’t like the style of the currently available tools.
