Migrating Whizz80 to Hugo

I’ve spent this weekend migrating the old whizz80.com website from using GRAV to Hugo. To speed up the process I’m using the same workflow that I use for my blog site for the new whizz80.com site.

While I did enjoy using GRAV, I did find it a little bit clumsy with updating the website in comparison to Hugo. I was probably over complicating the process because I was using a GRAV plugin that would pull down changes from a github repository. Eveytime I wanted to change the website, I had to push up to github repository to trigger GRAV to update it’s pages.

So instead I just edit my hugo files locally, test it locally, commit to a local git repository and simply run a deploy.sh script that rsyncs the files up to my web host. Easy!
