Well.  ‘Content management system’ in a Web context usually stands [0] for a 
some server-side software, that generates pages on-the-fly (‘dynamically’).  
Such a WCMS cannot be used on, which is a simple hosting for HTML & 
Co.  So rather than CMS in its normal sense, you actually use a static website 
generator, namely, as far as I see, a certain ‘Publii’ [1].

I am not familiar with it, and see no reason to expect that someone else on 
that list is, so you’d better address your question to _their_ mailing list.  
What I can say for sure, that what you asked is definitely possible.  Although, 
I do admit, that it might be much easier not to patch the generator to prevent 
it from adding nonfree scripts, but to take a benefit from the fact that it is 
not a CMS and runs only on your localhost, and simply *cut them out* just 
before uploading pages to GitHub.

awarded that term with his personal “prize for vacuity”:  :-)

something with it.”  So a “content management system” is a system for doing 
something to some sort of information.  Nearly all programs fit that
