CNDS Web Pages 3.0

Good bye Wordpress. We have moved (back) to static web pages, thanks to the wonderful Hugo web site generator. The move to Hugo was a bit of an effort but now we have (almost) all content back in plain files, a big advantage if you ask me. And the best of all, Hugo allows us to use org-mode to edit our content very conveniently in emacs.

So what are the benefits from the user's perspective? The biggest advantage is good support for mobile devices via responsive themes. And of course faster page delivery - serving static files is as fast as it can possibly be. And serving static files is very robust against attacks since there is not much left to attack.
