I wonder, if a Javascript Forth could run on there ...

If I'm correct the point of that „site-generator” is quite
contrary, according to the rules described here:

The description from there:

How to make a web page with txti
The only thing you have to give txti is the "Content."
Txti takes care of the rest, but you can take advantage of these options:
Custom URL
This is the part that goes after "txti.es/" like "txti.es/barry". Currently only accepts lowercase letters (a-z), numbers (0-9), and dashes (-). If you put anything else in there, txti will change it.
Custom Edit Code
Txti will give you a random edit code, but you can change it. You have to have this to make changes to the txti, and it can never EVER be retrieved if lost.
Title
Give your txti a relevant title so it shows up better when shared on social media, search results, and in browser windows.
Author
Let people know who made this! This shows up in some searches and social media posts, and your Twitter handle works really nicely if you post the link on Twitter.
Description
This is a short (200 character) summary of the page. This shows up in Twitter cards and search results. Txti will automatically use the first 200 characters of your txti as a description if you don't provide one.
Make your txti easy to read and understand
You can make your txti robust and full-featured
with links, images, lists, headings, and more.
Txti uses a popular set of rules called Markdown.
• #Heading 1 = biggest heading
##Heading 2 = second biggest heading
###Heading 3 = third biggest, and so on
• Two spaces (space bars) at the end of a line starts a new line.
• Return twice (leaving an empty line) starts a new paragraph.
• *italics* = italics
• **bold** = bold
• Links: [link to txti](http://txti.es) = link to txti
(note: be sure to include the "http://" part of the link)
• Images*: ![Monkey selfie](Loading Image...)
• Bulleted lists:
- Bulleted item a
- Bulleted item b
- Bulleted item c
• Numbered lists:
1. Numbered item 1
2. Numbered item 2
3. Numbered item 3
*Images must be uploaded somewhere else (we recommend imgur.com).
Because images can really slow down pages and we're all about "fast web pages for everybody," images are not displayed by default.
The reader has the option of displaying the images in the page
or just viewing links to them.

See an example at txti.es/images.
Important notes
• Txti will delete any pages that are more than 6 months old but have been viewed less than two times ever. If you make a txti and forget about it, it might not be there 6 months later.
• Legal concerns or pages you think violate txti's terms of service can be sent via private message or tweet to @txties on Twitter.

I received this email afterwards:
From: ***@txti.es
Sent: 21 December 2022 17:47
To:
Subject: Your txti at http://txti.es/ea5jc


I tried it out https://txti.es/ ,
did my first webpage.
And this gave me the idea,
and the question for people
who know more about the capabilities/limitations of this generator.
Or if only static is possible.
But there we are.

So you have more experience with that generator than I have, it seems.

Or even its creator if the comments here are indicative ...

Minimalism is hard to sell at any time, but especially after the
novelty has worn off.

Saw the following on reddit in the r/Forth group:
Lichen - A Content Publishing Tool Written in GForth

Not sure if its a Txti alternative but it looks good.

(I deleted my rant on sorry web pages both in look and performance
that have become iconic for businesses.)
