moving to hugo

old website

For years my site used Stacey, a no-frills no-database content management system. It served me quite well, but it’s time to move on. This site is now statically generated with Hugo, laid out with Skeleton, and served by NGINX.

Working with Hugo has been mostly been good, except for a few minor problems when working with shortcodes to create grids (issue 1148, though that seems to be mostly fixed with the current master). It’s been wonderful to be able to write everything in markdown and to easily extend it with my own shortcodes. It’s also nice now that everything is a static file and I no longer have PHP, Python, or node.js serving up content.
