I’ve been looking at developing a static website for quite some time, always been held back by the still complicated setup that was required on the writing and generating end of the website. This was untill recently when I bumped into Hugo. The only thing required here was a golang binary and a directory structure. After some playing around with it and finding the ease of use with which you could use templates I wa sold as you can see from this website which curently is completely static and generated by Hugo.
As a template I choose Beautiful Hugo created by Micheal Romero as a port of a Jekyll theme. But during using and adding content the theme got more and more little tweaks to fit my purpose and personal style.
