Moving to Hugo I started this blog as my first blog using a static website generator. Back then I used what everyone else was using: Jekyll. But Jekyll has it problems. I don’t use Ruby for anything else and the management of the dependencies / ruby versions / etc of my static blog was too much for me. I blog way more often in german on my other WordPress sites and one of the main reasons is that it is easier and Jekyll wasn’t as easy as I expected.
I’ve already using different blog systems like WordPress and Ghost, but this is my try to start a blog in english about personal and development topics with Jekyll. Maybe is the domain not my best choice (.de is the domain for germany), but as I haven’t any project on it, I will use it. I will be using GitHub as hosting service. That will have a few great side effects: you can download my whole blog via git clone, in the same way you could mirror my blog and if you want to notified when a new change happens, you could subscribe my Blog via the “Watch” Function of GitHub.
