Blogging with Hugo

February 11, 2017

So, I decided to throw out Jekyll and give Hugo a try. The main reason for this is that I got tired of fighting Ruby, RubyGems and all that every time (once a year) I wanted to do something with this blog. Hugo is just an independent executable which makes it way easier to use.

Although there are quite a few nice templates for Hugo, I didn’t find one that I wanted to use. There was always something missing. Even though I’m sure I would have managed to figure out how to change the theme I’ve chosen to write my own theme in order to learn how it works. I probably won’t end up very stylish, but that doesn’t matter. All I need for now is syntax highlighting and some basic blog functionality.

I hope to tweak and enhance as time fly by. Still, the style doesn’t matter if there’s no content.
