Hugo Website/Theme Development

Hugo is a ‘Fast and Flexible Static Site Generator’ built with Golang and developed by Steve Francia.

Static websites are enjoying a resurgence of popularity, owing to the inherent security that static content provides and because of their fast & streamlined codebase. Hugo is one of the fastest SSGs around and can compile an entire site of several hundred pages in a couple of seconds.

Posts are written in Markdown, a simple to learn markup language which Hugo converts to HTML and updating an SSG is probably a lot faster than you think. Check out this article which shows me simultaneously backing up a website to BitBucket and then publishing the latest version live on the internet —all in under 60 seconds.

I can build you a Hugo theme based around your current or proposed static site design, or can convert your existing blog from WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, etc. to run on Hugo.
