First post on Hugo!

Posted at Jan 12, 2020

This theme is using the colors from the Nord palette, icons from Font Awesome and fonts from Google Fonts.

All assets, however, are hosted under this domain, so no external CDNs are used. This might be overkill for GDPR compliance, but is definitely the safe route to avoid transmitting visitors’ personally identifiable information (such as IP addresses) to external providers for things as simple as these.

Other notable absences: JavaScript 👍

The whole thing comes together using Hugo, a static site/blog generator written in Go. Still missing: CI and CD (automatic deployment to a web server).

UPDATE: automatic deployment using GitHub actions is working too now!
