This site used to be built by Jekyll, now it is built by Hugo.
The site works out of a local GIT repository and is re-published automatically on push.
I have custom iOS Shortcuts which can share content I am reading as a blog post for me to write a commentary on. They get published via Working Copy the iOS GIT Client.
- Hugo is over ten times faster at building this site than Jekyll.
- Hugo seems more specified than Jekyll, in that it is really easy to work with, as long as your usecase matches the design.
- Jekyll is more flexible but that flexibility can leave you with a mess.
- The syntax seemed clearer in Hugo.
- I ended up with a much cleaner site implementation in Hugo.
- Date-based Blog Archive pages are not built natively in Hugo and I needed my own slightly inconvenient implementation with custom Front Matter.
- I was able to output nearly perfectly indented html with Jekyll, with Hugo I eventually gave up trying to do that and just used minification.
