I recently learned that SmashingMagazine uses Hugo in production. I can’t find any information on their build time though. I wonder if Hugo is suitable for big multi-thousand pages website (news-like).
- I would like to build a news website for my client that uses Hugo + Netlify + Forestryio as the CMS. Now, it’s going to use a lot of media, at least one image per post. I wonder if considering heavy media usage and the additional step of going through Forestry with all the posts would make the build time very long? I don’t think Smashing Magazine uses any CMS.
What is your experience? Would large media folder be a problem with building time?
- What about the size of the images. GitHub allows for 1gb of maximum usage. I could probably use GitLab as it’s 10GB there, but still I don’t know how to keep the size of the images in sane sizes. What are your suggestions? Maybe there’s a maximum file size in Forestry? Or use webpack? Other tool?
