Why? I recently came across Hugo, a static website generator. It’s based on Go, and uses the Go templating engine. It sounded interesting, and I had been looking for something to re-build my personal website, so I decided to give it a try. The only thing one needs in order to host a Hugo-based website is hosting of some kind. I have Azure credits, so that seemed easy. I also wanted to push the sources for my website to a private repository, and I don’t have a paid GitHub account, so I needed something else.
