If you ever thought, "Hmm, this new 'Livejournal' thing all the kids are talking about is *pretty cool*, but what if it was also private from server admins and used a static site generator"... then wow, do I have the protocol for you!

I switched from Latex to Mom & groff for writing papers this year, and holy shit it's 100% better than Latex. I love the line-based roff markup anyways, but it's so much simpler, wayyy better documented (without needing 15 external packages to do literally anything), and you still get equations, figures, tables, bibliographiesm the whole shebang. And it was soooo much easier to set up proper MLA and APA templates, because some of my teachers are very strict about their style guides
Highly, highly recommend Mom: https://www.schaffter.ca/mom/
