@leonp If Hugo could take advantage if Liquid and its much easier syntax, that would literally be the perfect coupling with its build speed. Templating is the one thing I’ve also found awkward about Hugo.
@pimoore An SSG like Eleventy is pretty templating-language agnostic – I think that’s the best approach. Also makes migration between systems a lot more easy. Like you, I’ve got by with Hugo before, but it takes more work.
