Phenomic is a modular website compiler that helps you build static websites optimised for SEO and UX with a modern approach: you can build your website the same way you build an app.

Phenomic differs from other SSGs by allowing you to pick the technologies, libraries, and frameworks of your choice and build your website with them. You can decide which renderer you want to use (such as React), which bundler (such as Webpack) and so on. If the solution you want is not implemented yet, Phenomic accepts plugins so you can bring your own flavor!

What Phenomic produces is simple: static files that you can deploy on any static hosting system (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, images etc). This means the server where you deploy your website doesn’t require a runtime. The result served will be an SEO friendly website (all pages are pre-built and can be served as HTML files) that is optimised for fast browsing (after the first HTML page, JavaScript files will handle client side navigation and only download what is necessary without full page reloads).

You can thus offer the best user experience by immediately serving pre-generated HTML for first visits (or all pages, for search engine bots and browsers that don’t interpret JavaScript) and then using the power of JavaScript to avoid full page reloads by only downloading small chunks of data for each additional page & interaction.
