Switching a Hugo theme

In the last post on Hugo, we quickly built a simple website with a minimalist Hugo theme. But what if we decide to switch our blog to a different theme? Is it really as simple as changing the name of the theme? Let’s find out!

Building a site with Hugo

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?
