All About This Is My Demo

What is This Is A Demo?

This blog started as a way to play with the idea of moving my old blogs from sources like WordPress, Blogger, etc to something I could control myself. Also something that was free. :) So this blog was born out of the need to learn how to use Hugo, GitHub Pages, and a front end like Front Matter. I have a way to go because everything is all new to me. Markdown language is also a learning curve.

About GitHub Pages

GitHub Pages allows you to host your websites and your projects directly from a Github repository.

About Hugo

Hugo is a static HTML and CSS website generator written in Go. It is optimized for speed, ease of use, and configurability. Hugo takes a directory with content and templates and renders them into a full HTML website. With its amazing speed and flexibility, Hugo makes building websites fun again.

Learn more on GitHub. Complete documentation is available at Hugo Documentation.

About Front Matter

Front Matter CMS is a free and open-source platform, dedicated to making it one of the best CMSs for your static site generator. I found them while trying to use other front ends for Jykell before I decided to use Hugo.
