Migrating to Hugo

hugo golang go website

I’m well aware that the design of this site has changed a lot of the years as I try and optimise things to the best possible state. I think it is fair to say that I’m not a designer and I never will be. Most of the time I rely on a quick bootstrap CSS layout to get things started. As you can probably guess, I dislike web design.

One of the major changes to this site is that I know longer use Jekyll to turn my content into a static site. This is partly because I’m not the biggest fan of Ruby and having to use gem files from time to time a lot just made me feel a little uncomfortable considering that I don’t know what I’m doing. Because of this, I have designed to use hugo as my new static site generator for managing and publishing my website/blog.

I think that Hugo is much easier to use and it uses that well-loved, Go syntax for managing HTML templates. Having spent the last few months using Go, I thought that it was about time to take things to the next level and migrate my site over to something which uses a language I’m familiar with.

Let’s see how this goes.
