New Year's blog reboot

While you were asleep...

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 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. Modifying the styling, structure, or information architecture.

But since I have not touched a piece of PHP code for a very, very long time —and I don’t want to, anyway— trying to do this proved unpleasant in WP. But easy in 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 and Bulma.

I highly recommend them. 😉
