Static site generators and Git modification times

Mon, May 30, 2016
One of the (mis)features of Git is that it doesn’t track file modification times, this could be a problem when using static website generators. As there isn’t any Blog/CMS running on the server, just a plain HTTP server handling static files, file modification times are important because browser will cache content using that time. If you build your site without taking this into account the result will be a website where all files times are new after each build.
