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.

I had a play with Hugo and it was good, uses Markdown files for content— David Caunt (@dcaunt) November 29, 2013
Even as a long-time Octopress fan, I’ve gotta admit that this project Hugo looks very very cool— Douglas Stephen (@DougStephenJr) August 5, 2013
