Zola is a static site generator that takes a "batteries included" approach. It is distributed as a single executable file that does not depend on any external libraries. Additionally, the sites that Zola generates do not require external JavaScript libraries to provide features like syntax highlighting, breadcrumb navigation, or tables of contents. As with other static site generators, the pages generated by Zola can be hosted by nearly any service and do not require a server-side database or any specific language runtime. The "Deployment" section in Zola's documentation gives step-by-step instructions for publishing a Zola-generated site on Netlify, GitHub Pages, and GitLab Pages. Zola is free software, distributed under the MIT license, with source code available on GitHub. The site generator's GitHub page also features a chart comparing Zola with several other popular static site generators. By visiting the installation page, users can locate pre-built binaries for Windows, macOS, and Linux systems. Alternately, instructions are provided to install Zola from the package managers for several systems.
