This blog was previously built around Wordpress around 2010. However, things have really changed since then. Storage has become so cheap that it really doesn’t make sense to have a server rendering posts.
There are quite a few options when it comes to static sites. It came down to a choice of three runtimes:
I tried installing Ruby awhile ago, but I kept running into errors. Since I wanted this be really straightforward, and the bad taste was still in my mouth, I decided to pass on Jekyll.
Golang is really nice as Hugo is just a single executable. Installing is really easy, and the dependencies are all inside.
Hugo it is!
This was also a good opportunity for me to cull a lot of posts that just don’t make sense anymore.
