After 5 years fighting with WordPress on my personal blog I switched to static in 2013. With Jekyll as my static site generator found a lot to love for some time. After 3 years and an increasing number of blog posts, however, I became intimately familiar with Jekyll’s speed and scaling issues.

Dissatisfied with my personal publishing cadence, and after some considerable product analysis in the SSG space, I eventually discovered Hugo. Before committing entirely I ran a multi-year experiment to mitigate any surprises before finally deciding to entirely jump ship for Hugo. After Dark was the result.
