first post with hugo

First post using Hugo as engine. The idea of generating a static site generator instead of installing some kind of blogging software that is hardly used to its full potential and basically is nothing but a memory hungry layer on top of an application server of some kind.

Being able to just post using markdown is a big plus too. Just focus on the writing and not on the way it looks.

Hugo is written in Go and has a very good theming engine. This blog uses the blackburn theme. But switching themes is as easy as putting a different theme in place.

This blog will probably be uploaded to a raspberry pi that is currently running my personal site. the original site there was getting old. I also felt the urge to put my rantings and sometimes decent code stuff somewhere.

See this nice youtube video to see how fast you can do something with Hugo
