	def seems to be the reigning champ, though there are many tools, and quite an eco-system in the JavaScript+Node/io.js world.  thanks for the upvote and examples.

	LOL i was talking to Zirafa about something similar (he calls it "Cassette") a while back.  i have been playing around with some static tools and am currently trying to do something like that, instead of simply generating a website.  though as you say the learning curve is steep for someone not doing this regularly.  however, i think it would be a great tool for non-tech musicians/etc: just get the audio, images, etc. in the right place and type "generate" and viola, a site with correctly tagged media for sharing ;)  well if anything even comes of this i will announce it here, though do not hold your breath ;P

	yes, Pt (Pushtape) is very cool and well done, and i can attest that it works well out of the box.  i just am wary of going down the CMS+DB road and maintaining that stack.  but that is a just my experience with Drupal/etc. not w/ Pt.
