A great power couple

Towards the end of 2017 I decided that I had to improve/update my tech stack. So, while doing the obliged tech review rounds, I found some jewels, a powerful couple:

  • Hugo as a tool for static site generation.
  • Bulma as a minimal CSS framework.

I got so excited that I tasked myself with ditching WordPress once and for all, and rebuild this blog with my newfound tools.

What can I say, the journey has been wonderful!

Restarting a blog a decade later

I really like tweaking my websites here and there, iterating until I feel they look just right. What I mean by tweaking could be modifying the styling, structure, or information architecture.

And since I have not touched a piece of PHP code for a very, very long time —and I don’t intend to do it anymore anyway— this was kind of hard for me to pull off using WP. But it became very easy with Hugo.

So here it is the new version live!

Some background

This blog was started on January 2008 using Wordpress.
Now it’s been rebuilt using Hugo, and it’s turning 10 during January 2018. Yay!

Finally

I just want to say the ride has been a liberating and exhilarating experience.

And if you do professional web development you should not miss on the opportunity to know/work with Hugo + Bulma.

I highly recommend them.
