(The Long Road) Back to Hugo
Once upon a time there was a full-stack software developer who could NOT stop redoing his personal Website. I think this might be the 50th or 60th time I’ve done it in the last 10ish years that I’ve owned this domain. I have used all sorts of content management systems (even wrote a couple of my own) and static site generators. WordPress, OctoberCMS, Pelican, Hugo, etc.
But I keep coming back to Hugo. Hugo is so powerful, fast, and flexible! The reason I kept moving away from it was because I kept wanting to add API endpoints to my blog for one reason or another.
This makes me all kinds of excited to be able to easily build/host a static site, but also have the ability to add whatever other API endpoints I want or need. I can imagine adding endpoints for creating new posts using IndieWeb principals.
Going forward the theme might change, but I think (and hope) that this time Hugo is going to stick!
