Late last week there was some idle chatter in an internal channel about blog software. Quite a few of my colleagues run their own websites, often using a Solaris 11.3 kernel zone. I mentioned the software that I've been using (well-known) and one particular colleague was aghast.
I spent quite a few hours mucking around trying to get Jekyll to work - and I assume that if I hadn't wanted to import my old site and have simple image galleries then it would have been find. However, it didn't work out for me, so I decided to give Hugo a shot. Within a few hours I had got most things working, and just needed to tweak the image gallery thing a bit. Carefully following the instructions at http://www.thehome.dk/article/photoswipe-gallery-hugo/ (and remembering to put my wp-upload hierarchy under $TOP/static) got me a much nicer post about our new pool. While over time I will go back through old posts and prettify them, I've only done a few for the moment.
