Sometimes you simply need a static website – not a blog, or a photo gallery or a complex, server-crunching database killer – but the simplest form of expression on the web. Static HTML is akin to writing your thoughts on a notepad and photocopying it for the rest of the office – it’s all about being quick and to the point without the frills. Whatever you need to say, Taigen is a very simple HTML generator that will help you say it in record time.
Using what Taigen are plugging as a “markdown editor”, creating a static website with a navigation, headings and off-site media is a bit like editing a wiki entry. Gone is HTML as you know it – there are no standard tags whatsoever. Instead the editor makes use of characters like the asterisk (*) to denote page title, links can be inserted with “[simple](http://your-url.com)” markup and the page you are constructing is previewed live, in real-time next to the editor.
The onus here is on simplicity, rather than bells and whistles. There are a few basic themes to choose from, and Taigen will host your site for you. The only catch is that you get a taigen.com/your-url which you can’t change and you can’t host media locally (though linking to Imgur and other hosts is fine). Taigen does however allow you to download your page and host it wherever you like, and for a small fee ($5) you can host 2 sites, choose a site name and enable your site to be mapped for SEO purposes.
