Sam Parsons (@Sam_D_Parsons; 50): hugo academic is great. Until you need to update something. Or something else updates, like R, or blogdown. Starting from scratch every time is not a fun option :(

Shannon Pileggi (@PipingHotData; 40): @gshotwell if you want to keep with blogdown, i’ve seen a lot of beautiful sites recently with @apreshill’s hugo apero, and @spcanelon documented her migration to apero

Shannon Pileggi (@PipingHotData; 40): @gshotwell my site built is with distill and automatically deploys through netlify, and i find it so much easier than when i first tried with blogdown a few years ago. here’s a comparison

Danielle Navarro (@djnavarro; 21): @KellyBodwin @apreshill my four main sites are… eclectic > work: - custom theme - uses hugodown - deployed to github > personal: - apero theme - uses blogdown - deployed to netlify > blog: - distill site - deployed to netlify > art: - another custom theme - uses hugodown - deployed to github > ¯_ (ツ)_/¯
