I did it again and changed my blog engine to Hugo ; as a consequence you will find some small change in style and navigation.
The first and foremost reason is the complexity induced by Jekyll . It requires some GB (who says that Visual Studio is big?) and many vodoo hacks to work on Windows. I ended having a Linux VM running Jekyll and some additional steps going from the Markdown file to a published post.
Hugo runs happily on Windows, included 10, use a few MB, no installer, no plugins or special pages to get tag navigation, RSS or Sitemap.
That said, I pleasantly discovered that Hugo is much more straightforward than Jekyll and this is not a surprise for me. I read a bit about Ruby and Go and found the latter less idiosyncratic and more clearly structured.
This is moving me to study Go more seriously: I have the feeling I will be at home with my C/C++ background.
