Trying out Hugo for the blog Well I have had my eye on Hugo, a static site generator for some time now. It is written in Go, supports markdown, has a rich theme system, and as it says it generates html you can just drop in for nginx or whatever your webserver happens to be. I've been using hexo for some time now, and it has worked quite well, but I'm not fond of managing the Node dependencies, and I don't know Javascript all too well so I wanted something that was both open source and written in a language I knew and could more easily contribute to.
