We can just have Webpack/Jekyll/whatever eat the Markdown as source code when the site's built before it's deployed, then the server's just got a bunch of HTML files and a CSS file it serves up and doesn't have to do any thinking beyond that, and the browser gets some static HTML pages and CSS to make it pretty.

Indeed, the point is that we want something super simple stupid. The use of javascript should be avoided. We get enough stats by having cloudflare in front anyway.

So having a landing page with a quick splash about OpenMW, how to get the latest stable release, a small blurb from latest blog post and then smaller links to other parts of the website. Blog, Documentation, Source, Downloads, About

I believe most of this can be handled with dead simple html and CSS wizardry.

Ideally the blog is just markdown converted to HTML. Some embedded youtube might cause us to have javascript however, but perhaps it's all done via HTML5 these days?

Update: ah no, youtube abuses iframes:

Code: Select all
