Building websites with Jekyll, Github Pages

This post has made me very curious. They use a different stack:

Jekyll for page templates and static file generation
HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files
GitHub Pages static HTTP server
Supplemented with external APIs where necessary

I guess, you can convert WordPress to static HTML. I found this description.

Looking a little further, there’s this setup using Really Static.

Why static HTML? HTML is secure and faster.

Speed: Any web server, will serve html files a lot faster than PHP generated files.
Security: If you are serving just static files, there is no way to hack your site.

Here’s a thread on the same at Quora

Nice to know I could offer a flat static HTML version of this site.

Any experience? Opinions? Further resources to look at?
