Welcome to the newest incarnation of my personal web site.

Being 2017, there is no longer a need to use the static web site generator scripts I wrote ten years ago using the Ruby programming language.

Instead, this site now uses Hugo as a static web site generator and a highly customized version of the XMAG template.

As a part of the “rebirth” of my site, I have added a few of my older bits of content back. I hope you can find some use for these articles.

Hugo

Hugo bills itself as “the world’s fastest static web site engine” and that is probably rather accurate.

It is written in Go and is available for many platforms from Windows and MacOS to FreeBSD and more. It is a command line application so it still requires somewhat of a programmer’s mind-set to use.

As HUGO creates static pages on my local computer, I am using a RSYNC client to move those changes to my web server.

Resources

Hugo can be found at https://gohugo.io/

The original XMAG template can be found at https://themes.gohugo.io/hugo-xmag/

The RSYNC client I decided upon was Acrosync. Unlike Hugo, it is not a free product but it met my needs and the personal license is inexpensive. It can be found at https://acrosync.com/windows.html
