How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the (Static) Web

I’m an early fan of the Baked, Not Fried concept behind static web generators. But somehow, getting all the tools in place to run one myself seemed onerous. A simple apt-get install mysql was always easier than the vaguely-mystical incantations required to get jekyll up and running.

Then again, there was my deep-seated prejudice against Ruby. (See my previous trolling of the ruby community when I accused them of being singlehandedly responsible for Global Warming.)

But with the emergence of Hugo, an elegant static site generator written in #Golang, I’ve been able to get over the line. Or maybe it was simply time that I had a blog again.
