I want my website to have more CMS functionality.
I’ve played around w PHP and MySql development and also Node/Express, etc.
You could use KeystoneJS CMS, or Ghost if you just want a blog.
Or you could just not have a backend and use Jekyll (Ruby), Hexo (Node), or Hugo (Go). Static site generators will let you build a blog, without needing a backend for your site, since blogs are just static content and a CMS is just for a non-tech users or large teams to update them.
For personal blogs and sites, there’s really no reason to have a backend. For most people, there’s really no reason to even use a static site generator. You host static sites on Github Pages for free, and I believe Github will actually spin up your Jekyll for you and build it automatically (but not the others).
I’m not sure what you mean by the string comment, but I’m sure PHP does nothing special that you can’t do with JS.
Thanks a lot. Both viewpoints are helpful, Hexo looks good.
