Markdown and rawhtml on a Hugo static page server

Posted By on January 26, 2023

Besides nursing duties and doctor visits with Brenda this past week, I’ve been working with a customer Hugonarrowlogo who would like to deploy a non-CMS website and completely forgot to post something on Thursday — making it up today. Although I’m partial to using an inexpensive Linux server with Apache and MySQL, he would like to use one of the lightweight static site generators. Since I’ve worked a little bit with Hugo in the past as a hobbyist, I demonstrated it and proceeded to head down a rabbit hole in trying to address the many limitations and how to still create a site that accomplished his goals (a learning curve was waste of several hours and an evening). 

Markdown is the preferred way to create content and once learned can be pretty powerful and quick. Unfortunately much of what we want to include nowadays bring in data that is easier to include as html. 

So I put together and reposted page from my WordPress blog on a Raspberry Pi running Linux and Hugo (the prior links may not remain alive all that long).
