Last night I got the wild hare to migrate my personal site from Pelican to Hugo. I’ve been meaning to do it for a while now, so to give myself the push I needed to get it done I deleted my old personal site from Github.
Differences Front Matter Honestly the biggest different for content is “front matter”. Both Hugo and Pelican, as static site generators, use front matter to describe pieces of content.
I recently started using Pelican static site generator for this blog. I was drawn to it for a few reasons:
It uses Jinja2 for templates, which I love. It written in python It reminds me a lot of Flask (this might be because of using Jinja2…) I’ve done a few interesting things with this site though. I’m hosting the repo that contains the source content, configuration, etc. on Gitlab.
