I recently got a domain and am considering hosting a personal web page. I did some research and narrowed my options down to either
Google AppEngine or
GitHub pages to host my website.
The website is just a simple personal data website with
Interests, etc. Don't really have any plans for dynamic content but who knows...
Anyways, recently I have seems a lot of one/two page websites that follow a similar template / design (particularly in mobile software and geeky personal pages, a rather simple example).
I was wondering if there is a trend that I am not aware of. I assume there must be some popular frameworks that are being used or is it all just HTML5/CSS templates ?
Also, in terms of web page design, the selected answer on this question: Is a CMS recommended for beginning a personal website with only a few pages? recommended a CMS. In contrast, this question Recommendations for a good personal resume/portfolio website recommends going for boilerplate HTML5 templates.
Although I'm leaning towards HTML5 for their simplicity (and ease of use with the two hosting options mentioned above), I was wondering how each option compares in development time because I would imaging executing a CMS site would be as easy as writing blogs.
Any suggestions would help ?
