This site was created with Hugo

This site was created using a static website creator called "Hugo." I am not what one would call a web developer, so a tool like this is really useful to me. (I'm looking forward to discovering all of the new and exciting ways I can find to break it going forward!)

More to come on this front.

I will be updating this post with my notes from deployment when I can; for now I am leaving all of the standard links here so that anyone else who's even the slightest bit curious about this tool can check it out straight from the source.

Original info straight from the Hugo's mouth:

Written in Go, Hugo is an open source static site generator available under the Apache Licence 2.0. Hugo supports TOML, YAML and JSON data file types, Markdown and HTML content files and uses shortcodes to add rich content. Other notable features are taxonomies, multilingual mode, image processing, custom output formats, HTML/CSS/JS minification and support for Sass SCSS workflows.

Hugo makes use of a variety of open source projects including:

Hugo is ideal for blogs, corporate websites, creative portfolios, online magazines, single page applications or even a website with thousands of pages.

Hugo is for people who want to hand code their own website without worrying about setting up complicated runtimes, dependencies and databases.

Websites built with Hugo are extremelly fast, secure and can be deployed anywhere including, AWS, GitHub Pages, Heroku, Netlify and any other hosting provider.
