switching to hugo

I’ve finally switched the content generation system that backs this blog over to hugo. I had been using webby until it stopped working due to changes in ruby and it’s dependencies.

The conversion was a bit involved as hugo’s date parsing is a bit strict and the urls it generates include a trailing slash. A judicious application of sed resolved most of the issues. Webby provided a bit more out of the box as it included deployment and asset management, but Hugo is:

  1. Maintained
  2. Fast
  3. Written in go which is my current favorite language

Hopefully being able to publish will entice me to resume writing regularly.
