Trying out Hugo

I’ve been doing some Go programming lately and I ran across the Hugo project while searching for something. It’s kind of like Jekyl but written in Go. I looked around a little more and I found a Go program to convert Ghost content to Hugo content. I ended up submitting a pull request because it was writing out some junk in the front matter of the posts. I think maybe it was written against a previous version of Ghost.

The point of Hugo is to be able to write your content in Markdown and publish it as a set of static pages. I like the idea of keeping my content in a Git repository and publishing it however I want to. I modified the Vienna theme a little so I can change the image at the top of the page on each post if I want to. I’ll probably submit a pull request for it.
