Another Year, Another Static Site Generator

This year’s hotness: Hugo. Being the web hipster that I am, of course I switched. Not that I didn’t have a good reason, I had already written two or three posts with Middleman, so it felt really old and used.

On a serious note, Middleman does feel a bit limiting when you build more complex sites with it. But maybe using static site generators for anything other than simple blogs and documentation is just a bad idea. It’s certainly a lot better than Jekyll and its awful Liquid templating syntax.
