In the past six months, I keep using Spacemacs to write code and it is very handful. So I wonder how to write articles in Emacs. After searching around, Hugo came into my eyes. Just following the tutorial, install the binary, clone a theme, and run the server, a blog is built in less than 5 minutes.
brew install hugo hugo new site blog cd blog git clone https://github.com/spf13/hyde.git themes/hyde hugo server -t hyde
The content in the org file is as following:
#+HUGO_BASE_DIR: ../ #+HUGO_SECTION: ./blog/ * First article :PROPERTIES: :EXPORT_FILE_NAME: first-article :EXPORT_DESCRIPTION: First article with ox-hugo :END: Hello, this is my first article
After writing the article, use
C-c C-e H H to generate the post or
C-c C-e H A to generate all posts.
Then you have multiple choices to host the blog, I choose Netlify as it can auto deploy after pushing to Github. It is very easy to use, supporting custom domain and SSL certificate for free.
Happy writing :)
