Fresh start

After seeing the minimal design of edne’s new blog, I’ve decided to remove all the Wordpress clunkiness from my server and begin using a static website generator. This turned out to be a wonderful choice.

I’ve chosen Hugo mainly because almost every other static website generator is written in Ruby, and I don’t like Ruby very much. The first impact is very good, I don’t miss anything I was using on Wordpress and the workflow is very straightforward. One nice thing that I noted is that I was able to tweak the theme with very little effort, and I’m not a web guy (I would not touch a Wordpress theme with a 10 foot pole).

So, now the only thing that is missing in this blog is content. I hope I will be more consistent than the last time. But I always say that when I start a blog.
