Hugo Publishing on a Cheap Server

A little while back, I mentioned that I ditched WordPress for Hugo. I like the change. There’s something about a folder of markdown files that get quickly converted into nice HTML that I can upload that I like. However, one hiccup that I did have was figuring out the best way to push changes to my site. Using FTP and having to compare each file seemed unnecessary, and I was sure there was a better way. Git would have been perfect, but my cheap webhost doesn’t have it, so I had to find an alternative.

Here’s what I found, partly for sharing, and partly to help me remember in case I forget how I do these things.

Adios WordPress

WordPress seemed to fizzle on my site and make everything break, so I decided to use this as an opportunity to try something new: Hugo.
