On Hugo: I’ve worked my way thru this Udemy course, which explains the principles: https://www.udemy.com/build-static-sites-in-seconds-with-hugo/
It’s fun; an alternative to server roundtrips; lots of cool themes to get you started: https://github.com/CodeFreezr/hugo-theme-awards-2018
I’m learning how to use Hugo to build websites. I signed up for a Udemy course by Dan Hersham.
I followed the tip to use Homebrew. And 2 to 3 commands later I had generated a skeleton of a site.
Hugo is well-documented and it looks like an exciting alternative to explore.
It supports TOML, YAML and JSON.
I still have a couple of lessons to go thru in my Udemy course.
