A include-able fragment that allows to embed youtube videos by video ID. The video will be sized properly to the available width using CSS only. No Javascript or other dependencies needed.

This is HTML/CSS only, should work for any static site generator with an include feature similar to Jekyll’s.

I found many answers on stackoverflow questions tagged with Jekyll and links are given when still available. As almost always with such matter, stackoverflow is the #1 resource for such questions.

It really depends on your needs, but I think, for the majority of simple blogs and/or personal homepages that are nowadays using Wordpress, it should work well.

Why should someone give up all the innovations of the last 20 years or so that made the Web a dynamic, lively and social place and go back to publishing static HTML pages something we did 25 years ago? Doesn’t sound very logical, nor does it seem to make any sense, does it?
