We are proud to announce that we are Gold Sponsor of Astro - the fast growing static site generator.
What is Astro
It’s a static site generator with component driven model of development. It’s very close to standard HTML and CSS but you can bring your own components in React, Vue, Preact, Svelte or web components.

What makes Astro special
Back in April 2021, I shared by thoughts on Astro on my first encounter with it.
I have seen @astrodotbuild this morning. The upcoming "meta web framework" from @skypackjs team (@FredKSchott, @matthewcp, @n_moore and maybe other I don't know 😅)— Georges (@georges_gomes) April 10, 2021
I think it's showing us something important. Here is my humble take on it and the emerging meta frameworks
6 months later, Astro continues to be more and more special.
Version 0.21 introduced some major improvements:
- A new Astro compiler, written in Go
- A new build engine, powered by Vite
- Components in Markdown (like MDX, but without the JSX)
- Improved npm package support (also powered by Vite!)
- Improved errors, stack traces, HMR, and overall dev experience
- and more
It’s a major rewrite and the team explained why.
