Migration to Hugo
- Very fast recompilation, even of very large sites (not that my site is very large)
- Built in LiveReload when running locally in server mode, very useful for iterating on writing and design
This article by Sara Soueidan was the original spur and is a useful introduction to Hugo.
I also took the time to build my own simple theme as a means of learning Hugo better (something I never bothered to do with Jekyll), based off the helpful and appropriately named Blank starter theme, and upgraded to the latest (mobile-friendly) version of User Interface Options.
