Who is this for?

Those that want to generate a basic static HTML site, with perhaps 1-10 pages, and do not want to maintain layouts, navigation elements, and footers across multiple files.

If you need programmatic components, then it would be better to utilize a more hands-on system like GatsbyJS, React Static, or a Content Management System (CMS) such as WordPress.

Just like in a typical Jamstack solution, the static HTML output can be easily served on GitHub Pages, Firebase Hosting, and a number of other places. Also see about upcoming Docker support below.
