Make the Web Fun Again
Introducing Hugo, a new idea around making website creation simple again. Hugo flexibly works with many formats and is ideal for blogs, docs, portfolios and much more. Hugo’s speed fosters creativity and makes building a website fun again.
Hugo is quite possibly the easiest to install software you’ve ever used, simply download and run. Hugo doesn’t depend on administrative privileges, databases, runtimes, interpreters or external libraries. Sites built with Hugo can be deployed on S3, GitHub Pages, Dropbox or any web host.
Fast & Powerful
Hugo is written for speed and performance. Great care has been taken to ensure that Hugo build time is as short as possible. We’re talking milliseconds to build your entire site for most setups.
Hugo is designed to work how you do. Organize your content however you want with any URL structure. Declare your own content types. Define your own meta data in YAML, TOML or JSON. Use indexes to group your content however you want. Best of all this is all done with virtually no configuration, Hugo just works.

Jekyll is dead to me these days though... long live Hugo! Hugo is *by far* the best in its field. Thanks for making it happen.— The Lone Cuber (@TheLoneCuber) August 2, 2014
Also, I re-launched my blog (it looks the same as before) using Hugo, a *fast* static engine. Very happy with it. gohugo.io— Ryan Martinsen (@popthestack) December 30, 2014
