Roots is a static site compiler, that generates static html, css, and javascript files. It’s very good at helping to build static front-ends. It is sponsored heavily by Carrot Creative, and makes frequent, highly variable builds quicker and easier for freelancers and agencies. It’s a truly excellent framework for quickly and easily building small to medium sized front-ends of any kind.

Static site generators are great, and this is one of the better ones I’ve tried.
