personal Blog, static site generated using Hugo.

Site Host

The site is hosted at A Small Orange, a site
I've been using for a long time. I use one of their smallest hosting
plans which is a shared Linux offering and up to 1GB of bandwidth a
month (I think). Someday I could switch this, but for now it suffices
and is cheap ($25 a year).


I have created a couple of scripts to help easily deploy the site to the
host. It requires that you are on a Posix style authoring environemnt
(I'm on Mac OSX) and have generated and installed your public key on the
host. - This script builds the site and puts it in the _publish
directory. It accepts the -d option to deploy the site immediately
to the destination host. - This script takes anything in the _publish directory,
TARs and Zips the contents, then secure copies (scp) it to the host. For
this to work you must have exchanged keys with the host - the script
will not pause to prompt for login on the remote host. Once the targz
file is copied, the script will remotely extract the file, completing
the site publishing. In the future this script may be configured to
publish something to Facebook or Twitter so people can be alerted to the
site haveing been updated.


I created my own site template for Hugo using
Liquorice as my starting
point. It is a simple theme with a couple of decent shortcodes. I will
likely update this at some point in the future to use PureCSS or
something similar, but this one was a good starting point.

The main shortcode provided is below to size an image to a smaller size to fit
on the page. Newer versions of Hugo may take care of this, so I will evaluate
that in the future.

Color Palette

I'm not yet using it, but I've generated a color palette using
Paletton that should help to make the site look
better in the future. Details of this follow.
