Uh I am kinda excited to (hopefully) ditch WordPress. I've used it on and off since 2005. It's time.

@greyor What are you going to? I currently run the site I’m doing off WordPress but would be super open to alternatives.

@nsmckinnon Not 100% decided but I am liking the looks of Hugo. I run YunoHost on my server and found a nice guide for installation: blog.arkadi.one/p/how-to-use-h

I don't know Markdown that well, but can learn; Hugo seems very elegant and lightweight. WP just seems like too much and I feel like I've been fighting with it. I'd like to be able to write my posts easily in Emacs. 🤓

@greyor I mean not all Emacs users are Org users and ox-hugo has quirks of its own to deal with etc., but I just find managing all posts from a single file much easier lol.

@kaushalmodi the maintainer has been summoned, everyone hide! :blobsweats: I think what I'm talking about is mostly from older versions, like summary, showToc, and TocOpen going into Hugo custom front matter in the drawer? I've seen update notes about some or all of this changing in the new versions, but I've been too busy being lazy to bring myself up to date :P



showtoc and tocopen parameters seem to be custom to your theme. So they would still go in HUGO_CUSTOM_FRONT_MATTER.

About summary, I have a page in the doc site on how to export that.

If you get to updating Hugo and ox-hugo to the latest versions, feel free to start a discussion (repo has a new Discussions section) showing an Org snippet of how you set all the front matter , and I may be able to provide some feedback.

Oh! And recently I started generating the changelog using the git log (and ever since, I am more disciplined in formatting my commit messages). So skimming through this may help you quickly discover the key breakages and new features: ox-hugo.scripter.co/doc/change

And of course, the latest ox-hugo will have a lot fewer bugs if you haven't updated it in a while 😁

@kaushalmodi hey thanks for chiming in! If I ever learn Org I will have to look into using your script! I appreciate your input for sure. @ljwrites



Ah! Sorry for all the noise with all these Org related posts then!

On the topic of learning , you can easily reach the /proficiency/ of Markdown in Org in a few minutes to an hour.

But once you are in that world (especially if you are an user) .. oh.. the possibilities are endless!!

Good luck with you move to either way. If you ever get stuck in that nice, we have incredible folks helping out people on discourse.gohugo.io/ .

@kaushalmodi not noise at all! I would like to learn for sure!

Thank you for your kind words and encouragement!
