Intergrating Static Site generators with php

I'm currently building a website using php that won't need regular updating and I thought of using static site generators as it will have a blog like feature. However my website contains a form the will link with a database and the problem i'm having is that the static site generators don't recognize and parse php.

I am currently considering using one of three static site generators
-Jekyll
-wintersmith
- Piecrust

I was wondering if this can be done or are static site generators just for static pages

Answer

In Jekyll, you can use the {% raw %} tag to avoid processing a specific part of your files. For example:

This will be {% raw %}<?php echo("parsed"); ?>{% endraw %} correctly.

After processing, the above should be translated to This will be <?php echo("parsed"); ?> correctly.
