My web site

I have converted my website to a static website. Previously I had used the Nikola static website tool which is written in python. It’s a great tool, but I wanted something more. I chose Hugo because

  • it is very fast
  • Since this is a technical blog, I needed to be able to embed rmarkdown documents easily. Hugo is great for this.
  • It has a large collection of templates. There are so many I actually spent over eight hours before I settled on casper-two

I chose casper-two because of the website codewithhugo.com

estebanmoro.org has a very detailed setup guide for hugo, Rstudio and markdown

A good reference for using R and Hugo together is blogdown: Creating Websites with R Markdown, specifically section 2.1 Static sites and Hugo

The other themes I looked at were:

In the long run I might choose the Academic theme

A good Academic sample site is https://lbusett.netlify.com
