This website is built using HUGO!!

The world’s fastest framework for building websites!

Hugo is one of the most popular open-source static site generators. With its amazing speed and flexibility, Hugo makes building websites fun again sort of ;-)

Static site generators do their work on the client side what you deploy to the webserver is just html and javascript. There are no security updates to worry about.

Jamstack is a sort of newish concept whereby you combine JavaScript, APIs and markup (HTML / markdown) to build pretty robust websites.

Using this technology stack you don’t need high end servers with lots of dependencies to run your website in fact you can build the site on your local - push to github and have your choice of “free” hosting options that will auto update your website after each commit.

To move one step beyond … this site is built like that but instead of living on a server is hosted on the InterPlanetary File System using fleek. So far it has been very easy to setup.
