Why Im Using Hugo Instead


sooo.... Hugo right...
yess...

ok actually....
originally this project using hugo at the very beginning lol...
then i switch to vue3 because i want to learn like proper webdev using powerful framework...
at first it was going smoothh... but as the time goes on... it just getting harder to get things work the way i wanted to be...
mainly because im not a smart enough to understand how to do something...
there is like a lot of trick that i must use... it just doesn't feel right...

i always avoiding using webpack... it just to confusing for me...
i know how it work... but it just to confusing... lot of config that i didn't quite understand i just simply copy paste from site like stackoverflow...
i usually use browserify to build any js web thingy... it much simpler and didn't require lot of config...

after that i just said enough... this is too much for me...
im just wanted to make simple website so i can share anything i like....
not to be confused by all the framework thingy...

don't get me wrong... i love vue3.. the learning curve is really friendly for hobbyist programmer like me...
but im not ready to use it... for now... im just wanted something simple enough...

then i found this cms called CraftCMS...
it really easy and i love it...
i rebuild my website and convert all my layout to this cms...

it was fun until yeah... i decided to reinstall my os and completely forget to backup the database...
i haven't push the website to live server yet... so yeah only layout and web data survive...
and i lost interest to recover all my work...

after a few month i want to comeback...
i got all the layout and stuff... i just need to construct it back...
i didn't want to use database anymore... because im scared all my data gone again...
i just want a everything all in one folder...
so it easier to do a backup

it sound like the job for static site generator right...
im still got all old layout when im still using hugo...

it much easier to convert my new layout which is using CraftCMS to Hugo because they share almost identical syntax....

and that brings us here....
a very simple static site using hugo...

i just do a full circle back to hugo lol...

ohh yeah... im aware there is other static site generator like jekyll or nextjs...
i prefer hugo just because i already familiar with it
