Was it hard to setup?
Learning hugo is very straightforward. Just check out the quickstart guide. You’ll have a blog up in an half an hour. And on top of it, there is plenty of themes available.
Host your blog source on GitHub or BitBucket. Configure themes as submodules properly:
$ git submodule add https://github.com/digitalcraftsman/hugo-steam-theme themes/hugo-steam-theme
Log in to netlify, connect your repo and enter these values:
Build Cmd: hugo Public folder: public

And that’s it. Enjoy!
