This website is built with Hugo. Hugo is static site generator software, open-source, and used to produce fast and flexible websites that don’t require a back-end. The code for the website is maintained on Github. I use a Hugo theme called KeepIt, which I have lightly customised. The website is deployed to Netlify for hosting, and I use Google Analytics for traffic measurement.

Content is written in Markdown. My preferred editors are Visual Studio Code on Desktop, and Working Copy on iPhone.

This set-up is stacked on top of many years of tinkering starting with HTML at the dawn of the web, and then later with platforms like Drupal and Wordpress, and much more I’ve long forgotten. Building with Hugo has been refreshing for the simplicity and fast results.

My next site is under development and for that I’m building with the Python-based Django web framework.

If you’re looking for guidance on creating your own little piece of the internet, then please don’t hesitate to contact me, and I may be able to help point you in the right direction.
