Playing with hugo

I’m playing a bit around with hugo - a neat static-site generator.
WordPress is huge and for me, a peasant hobbyist blogger, it just feels like using a gigantic sledgehammer for a simple nail. Especially since the horrible Gutenberg Editor became default it doesn’t feels comfortable and nice anymore.

A static-site blog is more what I would like to have - slim, fast, safe and super easy to maintain. Goodbye PHP, goodbye MySQL, hello super-fast site serving!

There are still a lot of things to figure out - I don’t want to loose my posts and comments, and probably need one or two plugins for map display and photo galleries. RSS is also a must-have (no idea if it’s build-in already).

Guess I’m still gonna play around a bit before I make my decision, but I definitely like what I see so far! :-)
