Setting up a blog with hugo


I spent this afternoon learning how hugo works. Here’s my hot take.

  • simple and reusable structure
  • builtin development server has hot reloads on changed content and layouts
  • simple configuration

At the moment, I’m wondering how much dynamic content I can power with it and some javascript. I’m thinking I’ll make my frontpage a Linux-esque environment with terminals showing recent blog posts. Maybe I’ll get more spicy as I go on, or maybe I’ll trim my ideas back.
