Static Sites are easy to maintain and are more secure than dynamic CMSes. In our experience with web development for the last 10 years we have built quite a few Content Management Systems / Blogging Engines / Web hosts (CosmicPipes, GetSimpleSite, SubstanceHQ, Websrvr). This is our latest stab at this problem, We wanted to build something which can take a Solid Host (like Github Pages) and give us ability to deploy static sites built with any kind of static generator.
Zammu is named after the two dearest things to me. My niece Zainab and my son Muzaffar. I haven’t loved anyone as much as I love these guys. This app is dedicated to them.
The team working on Zammu consists of highly experienced developers who are really passionate about building Zammu. They want to build a product which provides value to the users and makes their lives simpler.
We want to make building and managing static sites simple.
Technology is growing by leaps and bounds, But even today there are may website administrators which use FTP to deploy websites and manage their content by manually tweaking html. We want to provide them with tools to make their lives simple.
We have a bunch of things planned for Zammu. We know that everyone has different needs. We want to build THE Continuous Delivery system for static websites which can build any kind of static website. Also, We want to decouple the input pipe (Github Repo, FTP, Dropbox), the processors (Jekyll, Middleman, Nanoc) and the deployment server (Github, S3, Cloudfront).
Our team firmly believes in having a positive impact on the world around us. We want to make a product which helps you in a tangible way.
We'd love to hear from you. Please let us know if you have any ideas, suggestions, feedback to improve Zammu.
