Hugo is a Static Site Generator (SSG) that turns Markdown files into static web pages that can be deployed anywhere.

Like WordPress, you apply a ’theme’ to style your content. But rather than use a web-inteface to create content, you directly edit the content in markdown files. This lends itself well tomanaging the content as code and appeals to those who prefer editing text.

However, unlike other SSGs, you don’t have to be a front-end developer to get great results and you can jump in with a minimal investment of time.
