It took me, literally, less than 48hs to design and build this site with Hugo.
My personal site, so mind you, its fairly simple.
The design was tough: I didn’t wanted it to look like all other blogs. Caught me in a bad week too, so it took me around 5 hours I believe. Most of those hours I spent looking for inspiration and trying things. The coding part was a breeze, can’t really put a timer on that part.
6hs to shoot the video (prep the camera, charge the battery, download resolve to edit the video, find a suitable SD card which I couldn’t so I could only shoot 4 seconds of video, doesn’t matter, I make do with what I have) and less than 2hs to deploy the website with Amazon S3.
The result? Hugo built, AWS hosted. Beautifully simple blog.
True, with Wordpress you might be able to deploy a blog in ten seconds.
But to make it your own?
Only with Hugo.
48hs. Time’s up. Where’s yours?
P.S: I still can’t use integrity data check with the CSS and JS because of CORS (I presume, even when CORS is oka and anonymous). https://www vs https:// issue I believe. Oh well…
