We need a platform to publish our official statements and other updates

PB Pirate Bady Public Seen by 132

Currently is a plain HTML website and updating it everytime when we have to publish a new statement or any other update is not so easy. So it'll be better if we can switch to a blogging system. Hugo is a static site generator (SSG) written in Go and it already has a template that matches the current template of so that migration will be easy. Also, Karthik has volunteered to migrate our website to Hugo. While some people support SSG based solutions, some vote for innovative solutions like using which supports federation and hence can be followed from mastodon and so on. Please comment your suggestions.

Do we need to port entire to hugo ? I suggest to run a SSG just for blogs and point as

If it helps reduce maintenance load and easy for new people to contribute (just add .md as opposed to editing html) that will be good. So if we do it for blog, why not for the whole site? If there is RSS feeds, we could try posting it to other services automatically.

what we call entrie here is just a single HTML file :)
as i already said, hugo already has a similar template and porting is just a matter of moving contents (i.e. no need to rewrite the whole template). Thanks to @Ranjithsiji, he found this theme and suggested that we could use it. The advantage is that we can add more static pages easily if needed.

Static site with hugo sounds great.

I think for the sprilklr statement, we can add it as a page if ssg conversation will take some time.

of course, i just posted this in advance.

SSG using Hugo can be doable fast. In my opinion we must consider this as an opportunity to convert our website to HUGO.

As long as the migration makes things easier to maintain and if the current maintainers agree, lets do it.

Karthik already tried porting and the demo is available for preview at as a maintainer of the current website, i've no objections in pushing this to upstream. if participants in this thread agree i hope we can give it green flag without opening a poll.

I've started working on revamping our current website. Once complete we can turn it into a Hugo website. The landing page currently looks like this.
