My blog built with Hugo (static website generator) and Bulma (tiny yet powerful CSS framework).

Content and choices

It contains a theme coded specifically for the blog, with examples taken from Hugo documentation. The purpose of not taking a great existing theme is to learn new webthings (because I really suck at web development). Also I wanted to learn a bit about Bulma, a tiny CSS framework without a line of JavaScript.

Hugo is really powerful yet pretty light and really fast. I do like the way templating is used to achieve very elegant tricks. In the past we would have used databases and dynamic languages like PHP for the same result.

I think that using Wordpress for a little static blog is no longer relevant and I am really enthousiastic about projects like Hugo. Additionnally, the community seems very friendly. Other static/flatfile CMS such as Ghost have an economic model that I don't like (eg you have to pay for plugins) and Grav is great but not so artisanal : the learning curve is pretty high and you stll need PHP.

With Hugo, I really have the sensation of minimizing the ressources I use while totally understanding what I am doing (even if I am doing it badly).

TBH I haven't heard of Zola when starting this blog. Maybe today I would choose Zola, because it seems less complex and making more sense (eg with its templating language), but I'm still happy with my theme.


Just run hugo and serve the public directory.

Remember to delete existing public directory before rebuilding blog.

For development, run hugo server --watch to watch for config/content changes, rebuild site and serve it on localhost.
