I posted last year about using Hugo and Madoko in a Custom Docker Image for GitLab CI/CD. I received an email asking for more information about the image and my CI file setup. This post goes into a bit more detail about the GitLab CI configuration file that I used and what the various parts of it do in the build process.
I migrated to Hugo from Wordpress, and in that process I have been trying to find ways to optimize the editing, building and hosting systems that I use for this website.
I recently decided to switch from Wordpress to a Static Site. This post is a review of what I finally ended up with for the most simple solution for my site. I had a few guiding principles as I worked through the process of setting this up.
- Free or Cheap static site hosting
- As few moving parts and systems as possible
- Easy to create or update content from desktop or mobile
- Supports SSL (HTTPS) for my domain
