After fighting with WordPress on my personal blog for 5 years starting back in 2008 I like many others switched over to static. With Jekyll as my generator I found a lot to love over the years. After 3 years and an increasing amount of content I became familiar with Jekyll’s speed and scaling issues and ended up resorting to workarounds to avoid them, hurting my publishing cadence in the process.

Dissatisfied with Jekyll and after considerable product analysis I eventually discovered Hugo. Before switching I performed a multi-year experiment with Hugo before deciding to jump ship for good. After Dark was the result.

Simplicity is a great virtue but it requires hard work to achieve it and education to appreciate it. And to make matters worse: complexity sells better.
