Static Site Generation With Hugo and Markdown
October 13, 2018 at 07:00 PM
Ever tried to launch a website of blog with WordPress or Drupal but found that it was experiencing poor performance or was becoming increasingly expensive to operate? Dynamic content, or content that is rendered based on database or HTTP requests, can become more costly to operate as demand increases or slower as features are added. We’re going to look at static site generators such as Hugo which allows you to pre-compile, in a sense, your website or blog using a familiar syntax such as Markdown, so that way it is blazing fast, cheap, and has no dependence on a database. The speaker’s blog, www.thepolyglotdeveloper.com, is an example of what you can accomplish with Hugo.
