I’m a frontend developer at the V&A and I have recently posted a write-up detailing how we used Hugo for our new collections website. You can also check out Explore the Collections itself also.
We were very impressed by Hugo’s powerful templating and speedy performance. When we initially decided on using static pages for the object pages, we were concerned about how long it would take each time we needed to build the site. Hugo manages to generate the pages for the entirety of collections in about an hour however!
Hope you enjoy checking out ETC! We’re still in Beta and will be using Hugo for other features in the future too!
