Carmel Gafa's site

Hugo Static Site Generator

This site was done using Hugo static code generator and the hugo personal-web theme by Baptiste Jacquemet .

I previously had a custom site that I built using Angular and .NET that was difficult to maintain, so I ended up spending more time tinkering with the code than on content. For this reason I looked at a couple of options and finally settled on Hugo.

I am also using Netlify and obviously github for my CI/CD pipeline. Editing is done using Visual Studio Code.

I got an idea on how to use Hugo from the video tutorials by Mike Dane .

Below are some notes that I took for my reference.
