Hugo | Static Site Generator
Static Site Generator
I have reviewed and tried a lot of different ways to create a personal Blog so that I can share Code, Knowledge, Pictures and do Reviews. After spending some time with Hugo it has become the framework that I have liked the most. The Theme “Hugo Future Imperfect” is also the Hugo Theme that I have liked the most.
Some of the ways I have reviewed creating a Blog require a monthly fee to host the web site for you. I am using Github to host the web site where there is no monthly cost. I like how you can add Google Analytics code to all the pages within a Hugo Site. To add Google Analytics all you have to do is edit one line within the config.toml file.
To create the web pages Hugo is so FAST! It is the fastest file creation framework that I reviewed. Is is also very easy to use.
One of the main items I wanted a Blog site for, is to share code I create. I could just create a Public Github repository, but that just isn’t as pleasing to the eyes as a personal Blog can be.
The first person I know that created a Hugo site is AdminWillie. I met him at the Central PA VMUG meetings and I also started attending the Blair County Little Hacks that he organizes. A great example of the vCommunity sharing ideas.
