Whilst developing this website and porting it over to Hugo, I have written a few handy scripts to help me test the site for errors. I am going to present the scripts with a little explanation about what each script achieves so maybe you can use them too.
Hugo is a static site generator written in Go and is well known mainly for its compilation speed and ease of use. (This website uses Hugo to compile the website.)
I have recently ported this blog over to Hugo. Hugo is a static site generator written in the Go language. In preparation, I thought it would be a good idea to read a book on the topic. The world is not exactly overburdened with up to date books about Hugo so the shortlist was very short. In Hugo’s defence, the documentation provided by the project is pretty good. But, it is always helpful to have an outside perspective.
The Tech Teapot first started in late 2006. It wasn’t called that then, it started out as the blog for OPENXTRA Ltd., a company I co-founded all the way back in 2003. Latterly, I kinda assumed that The Tech Teapot was dead. The website was still live but not in its original form. I converted the old Wordpress site to static HTML using the very good Simply Static Wordpress plugin so I couldn’t easily modify the site even if I wanted.
