My last update to this website was a migration from Gatsby with a custom made theme to 11ty with modified eleventy-high-performance-blog theme. And while it was very educational and inspiring to see what kind of performance improvements were possible the theme itself became a bit difficult to manage, requiring a lot of maintenance.

After trying out Go for hobby projects I’ve been intrigued with a static site generator Hugo and decided to try it with a custom theme hello-friend-ng.

The end result was very satisfying. It was easy to setup, build time is lightning fast and thus far, I assume, maintenance will be also minimal.

Let’s see if I will focus more time on writing and less on resolving merge conflicts or npm updates for my website. 😄
