Migrating from Jekyll and GitHub Pages to Hugo and Netlify  ↦

Sara Soueidan:

My site is relatively small, I’d say. I have less than 100 blog posts. Less than 60 at the time of writing of this article, actually. And only a few static pages. I don’t use heavy JavaScript. In fact, I barely need to use any JavaScript. And yet, Jekyll still choked every time it had to compile it.

I’ve seen more and more people jump ship from Jekyll due to performance. Paul Robert Lloyd migrated over to Eleventy, even I’m contemplating something else. Interestingly enough, the static site generator comparisons mostly have to do with developer ergonomics because they all essentially do the same thing: output static HTML.
