I understand Markdown perfectly fine, I don’t need a fancy WYSIWYG editor with tons of options; just the basics. It makes it easy to store posts as text files, while images and static content goes to another folder. Markdown is such a convenient format!
Hugo is extremely flexible, you can decide only which things you want to include into your website or blog. As I mentioned, I don’t need nothing other than posts; so I can easily make a minimalist website without bloat. And, I personally love minimalism and simplicity.
Drew DeVault is right, simplicity = effortless accessibility, he wrote about it on his blog post. Keep things simple, so you can reach a wider audience! And that’s an important philosophy I believe more developers (including me) should take into account, for the sake of humanity!
Yeah, Hugo is cool. That was my first reason to move my blog.
