Building and Deploying the Blog

I use sourcehut for version control and storing my code. That includes this blog. My workflow until today was pretty simple. I make changes to the blog, commit and push those changes to the remote repo and then I would build the blog and use rsync to copy changes over to my host. I have everything set up to do this on the two main machines I use. It’s really pretty easy.

One of my big issues was getting something that looked the way I wanted. There are lots of Hugo themes available. The problem was a combination of two things. First Hugo is being developed and improved at a rapid pace.
