Over the last month, the CantrellCrossing.com website has been converted to a blog powered by the Hugo static content generator. Hugo’s build process is fast and it simplies development tasks. Specifically the creation of summary pages for categories, tags, and paging are seamless and appreciated.
Why Hugo as my blog creation utility? The output is HTML without an associated database and Content Management System (CMS) to patch and secure. Markdown for content simplifies the posts but it is easy to include HTML to control the output where desired.
I hope to share lessons learned from my experience with Hugo and other technologies in future posts.
