About

About the site
  • I remember using the omnipresent wordpress, blogpost and other CMS a decade ago, and hosting it on crappy hosting services with buggy implementations.
  • Fast forward to 2020, the necessaity of a personal portfolio webpage inspired me to try something different. The result of which is an attempt to design and make this portfolio & blogging page.
  • Searching around made me read about Static Web Pages and how it was taking over the domain of blogging, and basically sites with static content, by storm.
  • Consequently, after due deligence, I have gone on to use the fabuolous Hugo Static site generator(SSG) and hosted it quite effortlessly on Github Pages. (You may do it on any VPS)
  • Hugo uses Markdown as a writing language, which is better suited for static information & blogging sites, than HTML, which is a publishing language.
  • You may check the speed at which pages load on this website. That ones entirely coz of the SSG!
  • Hugo has a certain learning curve, but when done properly, is quite satisfying.
  • Big shout out to the hugo-coder theme that i have used for this site.
