Hugo vs. Jekyll: Why I Choose Jekyll (FreeBSD)

If you can handle the incessant coughing (sorry!), this one is for the Hugo guys.

A lot of people recommended (Go) Hugo as a better alternative to Jekyll after my last video so I decided this past week to jump into it and compare the two.

Here are the things I like about Hugo:

  • Speed of build time.
  • Asset pipelines in the template.

Things I don't like about Hugo:

  • Slightly more confusing structure compared to Jekyll
  • Templating is a steeper learning curve

I now host all my static sites on OpenBSD over at Vultr.

UPDATE: So this whole static site thing became a giant rabit hole and newfound passion.

I ended up learning React and switching over to GatsbyJS.
