Move to Hugo

It’s been a while since I’ve made a new post… partially due to being swamped with work and partially due to spending time (which could have gone towards new posts) playing with Hugo. I jumped in the Jekyll boat without really investigating other options – after learning about Hugo it seems to be a better fit. I particularly like the dependency free, single executable (happy to abandon the ruby bundler ecosystem). Now I have some new motivation to post more - a new static website generator toy.

The transition was pretty painless. I polished up some mistakes in old posts, made any changes needed for Hugo, found a theme on the Hugo themes website that I liked, and started hacking away. Since I already switched over to Netlify (see this post) it was very easy to have their service build a Hugo website.
