Hugo is a fast and well thought-out static site generator, written in Golang. It’s easy to learn and has some neat features2 - the trickiest part is understanding the difference between various ways pages are organised: “sections”, “types”, “taxonomies” etc.
The Vim plugin vim-markdown provides good support for authoring Hugo posts since it supports syntax-highlighting for:
- Github-style “fenced” code blocks and
- JSON or TOML front-matter.
Both things that Hugo supports.
Downside: you have to use git submodules to keep the
public folder of HTML
files in a separate repo.
