The Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is…42! -Deep Thought

Basically I had a couple of projects that I wanted to document and show off as I made them.

That’s it.

Longer version…

I had a blog powered by ghost running on a raspberry pi. I hated the effort I had to put in to get a decent front end theme that I liked. I’m not a front end guy. I hate javascript. I switched to hugo and the customization I’ve done so far have been 100x easier. I write a post in markdown and commit to github and it does all the publishing for me. I wish I had a little more control over the formatting of the posts that a good gui would give me… but overall much better.

I like the concept of ghost and would recommend it if you find a theme you like or like creating themes. I don’t.

Hugo is quick, easy templates for everything, huge community for help. I’ve been able to find an answer to every question I’ve had so far.

I can post code:

print("hello world!")

And the theming creates nice landing pages / responsive sites with no effort. I like no effort. I want time to work on the projects I want, not maintain crap. I’m getting too old for this shit.

Also if you’ve been paying attention, I’ve been using these first couple of posts to learn shortcodes and iron out any issues.
