How I host my website
This is a brief overview of how I host my static webpage using HUGO, GitHub, and Netlify.
I use a static website generator called HUGO, which I run locally on my machine. My current HUGO project is uploaded to a private GitHub repository, where Netlify then picks it up, builds the site and hosts it on their CDN.
Using Netlify-CMS, I’m able to create posts, edit existing ones and manage my media library for post content.
Each piece of media is uploaded to a sub directory in the images folder, organized by post title as to not muddle up the image library.
I prefer minimalistic, clean interfaces.
I also have a soft spot for early 90’s/2000’s internet aesthetics. Sue me.
