With my experience in website designing, I have learnt that it is always a
better option to use a robust framework rather than building from scratch.
For this specific purpose, I searched a bit and found that Docusaurus
<https://docusaurus.io/> is a great tool which might help us make a
maintainable and good-looking website for our purpose. There are many
open-source projects which already use docusaurus for their websites, such
as Babel <https://babeljs.io/> and React
<https://facebook.github.io/react-native/>. I would urge you, and others to
have a look at docusaurus and if that meets the requirement, then we can
deploy a website.

One of the most important points which I think should be concentrated upon
is that the website we aim should be hostable directly via Github pages
<https://pages.github.com/>, since it is free(for open source projects) and
extremely easy to setup.
