Why should you choose Hugo?

Hugo is widely supported by the Jamstack community, and has more than 100K live sites, largely because of its well deserved reputation for speed, simplicity and flexibility. It bills itself as “the world’s fastest static website engine”, with build times on an average site of <1ms per page.

Distributed as a single cross-platform binary and built with Golang, Hugo lets you get up and running sooner, with built-in functionalities like menus, sitemaps, feeds, i18n and image optimization. And when it comes to themes, Hugo’s got them in spades.

Above all, Hugo boasts a thriving community of active and supportive users contributing to Hugo documentation.
