Blogging with Hugo

I decided to start up blogging again. My eyes have long been on hugo as a blogging plattform.

My needs for blogging are:

  • blog showing actual syntax highlight code
  • blog using plantuml diagrams
  • blog using markdown

Hugo makes all of that possible although plantuml integration does not look to be as smooth as I want yes. More on that later.

I struggled for a long time finding a theme I like, for now I am kiera, but not sure it will stay that way. Needs for theme are:

  • fast
  • responsive
  • syntax highlighting using chroma (not highlightjs) since i want hl_lines and table linenumbers
  • simple
