GENERATORS:

WHAT KIND OF DYNAMIC CONTENT YOU NEED ON YOUR SITE:

Jekyll and rails site together? I need a contact form, comments, etc. - https://github.com/nz/jekyll-rails-hybrid

Compiling on cron/pings on server?

Can we have the benefits of static and dynamic tools?

Not everything should be published with flat files

Can we have one way of delivering a site with both flat files and dynamic services

JS at webmention.io webmention.herokuapp.com

Sinatra http://www.sinatrarb.com/

Render a static site, pull in dynamic content with javascript
