Preface

This series of blog posts outline how to setup a simple blog with a static website generator – in particular this very same website. While this series of blog posts are intended for people who are not web designers, I assume that the reader is technical and familiar with Git and HTML. As much as possible, I will try to list out the exact commands to run and include links to references for further information.

The main source of inspiration of this series of blog posts was derived from the official Hugo tutorial on setting up a blog generated by Hugo and hosted on GitHub Pages.
