I have switched the generation of this site to hugo. I have been watching hugo for a long time now and love the fast build system in go over the de-facto static site generator jekyll. This site has been for a long time using my own static site generator but I wasn’t putting the effort into maintaining it, so thus the reason to switch over to a well maintained project.
This site has always used some build scripts to generate it in various formats. This has changed over the years but I have tried to keep it simple. When I first saw jekyll a few years ago I liked a lot of what it did and I thought about converting this site to use it. I didn’t end up going with it because I liked being able to change whatever I want and I am much more comfortable with PHP than ruby.
