I have long thought about converting my Wordpress blog into a static site with all the posts as markdown files, using either Hugo, or Jekyll, or Gridsome, etc.
However, I have a custom shortcodes in each of my posts which grab data from a database and convert it to elements in the post.
I tried doing some research about how to make this situation work in a static site, but I in a bit of a loss as to where to start.
- Would it still work as a static site with bits of dynamic content being called at render time?
- Or would the dynamic content be called at build time only (which would be totally ok as well)?
So I thought I'd ask you guys: anyone with similar experiences or tips about this?
