Migrating to Hugo
When I set this blog up over a year ago, I had all good intentions of posting more frequently. Alas, for over 12 months I haven’t posted anything more. I really must try harder!
My other websites are all still running on Wordpress, and I would really like to migrate them over to static sites. Why? Primarily due to the huge bloat that exists in Wordpress these days.
Originally I was intending to do this with Jekyll, but before I started I went for a look at StaticGen to compare the static site generator (SSG) options available. Hugo is much faster at building sites (sub 1 second), and gets frequent updates. Hugo is also written in Go, a language that I started to use more towards the end of last year and was keen to spend more time with.
Having made the decision to migrate my other sites to Hugo, I felt it sensible to migrate this site first.
Whilst I have changed the colours, I may also make some more styling changes, but for now, I just wanted to get the site live!
