@barning ich mag das Bild was hinten an der Wand hängt. "Don't work for A**les" ist auch mein Lebensmotto 😂

@Archimage Same here. Enjoy! ☕️
The best way to get rid of job recruiters - tell them you're interested in working less hours, than earning more money. Guaranteed, you won't hear from them again. Ever. #futureofwork
@robinjanssens out of the box, pure Hugo looks very modern and up to the latest Web / SEO standards. Stuff that o would usually need a few Ruby gems for, appeared to be included in the standard Hugo distribution.
It is also extremely customizable - so much so that one can have as many separate content collection types (sections) as one needs, where each may have its own template, RSS feed, metadata etc, totally independent of the rest.
@robinjanssens Besides pure performance, I have personally always regretted the fact that Jekyll is written in Ruby and not in Python. Somehow, I never got onto the Ruby train. I use it when I have to but try to stay away if I can.
Recently, I have started looking seriously at bare-metal programming languages as a way of achieving things with less overhead. In that sense Hugo was more of a welcome discovery, (although I personally Rust more).
I’ve been working on a revamp of my personal site https://preslav.me It’s a move away from #Ghost and back to static site generators, however, this time I am using #Hugo instead of #Jekyll. Hugo’s performance is blazing. Even with the quite a few pages it has to render, it still builds the entire site in sub-500 ms intervals. For comparison, it took Jekyll up to a minute to do the same.
It's a wonder we could do our taxes before the internet.
I remember those paper guide books, and the many, many erasings in certain fields. Ugh. And the unclear wordings that you couldn't really be sure you were interpreting correctly. Being able to find several different web sites discussing each line makes it much easier.
@alexcleac this is nice. Is there a way I can get to this script? Is it public?
