This site is a collection of HTML files generated from Markdown using the Hugo framework.
Markdown is fairly simple to use. Combine that with the ease of deploying static websites (and increased performance), and it’s hard to not recommend using a static site when possible, ideally through GitHub Pages or a similar service. These services have a global CDN and provide one-click hosting, straight from your Git repo. Having said that, I’m currently hosting this site on my personal server, for flexibility and extensibility.
