Another blog relaunch! After not updating my blog in 9 months I’ve decided to do a reboot. I’ve done this many times before and it tends to get me back into blogging for awhile before I let the blog get stale. We shall see how long I last this time. Unlike previous blog reboots I’ve done, I actually carried over a spattering of old content and even the same domain for the site.
This version of my blog runs on Hugo which is neat. The previous root.wtf ran on Jekyll, which I found to be a little easier to customize than Hugo. I’ve seen people suggest that Hugo is much faster than Jekyll, which does appear to be the case, but since they’re both generating static pages it doesn’t really matter that much. (For this tiny site Hugo’s generator returns install while Jekyll took a few seconds) I’m using the After Dark theme which is pretty cool, and I’ve customized it up to where I’m fairly happy with it. Because both store content in markdown files, migrating a few token posts over was pretty easy. You could script a mass migration of a large site without too much trouble.
Hopefully I’ll be more diligent in my blogging this go around because I do enjoy an outlet to write.
