About the template

This is a Next.js, Tailwind CSS blogging starter template. Comes out of the box configured with the latest technologies to make technical writing a breeze. Easily configurable and customizable. Perfect as a replacement to existing Jekyll and Hugo individual blogs.

It is inspired by Lee Robinson's blog but focuses only on static site generation. Design is adapted from Tailwindlabs blog.

The goal was for it to be nearly as feature-rich as popular blogging templates like beautiful-jekyll and Hugo Academic but with the best of React's ecosystem and current web development's best practices.
