Thoughts on Hugo
posted earlier about moving from Blogger to Hugo
and it has been a couple of months so I thought that I share my thoughts on how Hugo has been working out.
Markdown is ideal for writing articles and blog posts especially if you fall into the distraction free school of writing.
The formatting of code snippets is a lot better then what’s available on Blogger.
Able to version control everything since everything is available as static files.
Site generation is fast and deployment is quick and easy.
Easy to work offline.
Allows the use of HTTPS!
Navigating and finding files gets troublesome when the archive becomes large.
VIM is not great for writing prose.
Not being in the Cloud means losing the convienience of being able to work from any browser just by logging in.
Having to remember to sync with Github in case there are edits done elsewhere.
Consistency of quality in available themes.
Having to maintain the software (upgrading Hugo, configuring web server/app engine).
Markdown requires more work inserting links, images, etc.
Basically, there are gains to switching to Hugo as well as some inconveniences.
