I’ve worked with several sites built by Jekyll (written in Ruby), particularly on GitHub Pages, but for this site, I’ve decided to give the Hugo (written in Go) a try.
Why specifically Hugo? Given the Go implementation, I looked forward to not having to deal with Ruby versions & environments, and Ruby gem dependency incompatibilities. Having worked a bit with Go, I was looking forward to a much simpler experience. I also liked several of the themes written for Hugo, and wanted to try some of them out.
So how did it work out for me?
