I started a new homepage project using gitlab and a static site generator, in this case HUGO.
Setup was easy and straight forward.
- Create a new project in gitlab using ‘pages’ as a template (https://gitlab.com/pages/hugo).
- Insert the correct DNS entries to your domain registrar.
- Choose a design theme and copy it in the corresponding folder.
- Update, commit, write in markdown using your favourite git program. I use TowerGit, since I had an old license.
Let’s see and hope that it’ll keep up the good first impression. I actually wrote the same about the last setup using yellow. I guess, I like trying new things..
Usefull links: markdown and shortcodes
I moved some of the old posts here as well. Since the old and new system used markdown, it was pretty easy.
