It is done - is online. I want to use this site to document my experiences, especially in the digital world, and share the gained knowledge. While looking for the right tools for such a site, I soon landed on Hugo, a Go framework for generating static websites. Using static websites, especially with Hugo, comes with several advantages:

  • Fast generation of the whole website (few milliseconds)
  • Simple deployment without dependencies on the server
  • Built-in support for multilingual sites
  • Extensive template support that is easily adjusted
  • Easy post creation in markdown format

I am pleased with my first experiences with this framework. As a basis for the theme, I chose hello-friend, which I will customize to my needs step by step. I will document some of these steps here.
