I was looking for a solution to run a little blog, I did try wordpress but it’s not what I was looking for, then I discovered Hugo. It’s a Go program that will parse Markdown files (your articles in fact) and generate a static website for you. I don’t want to describe the full configuration on this article, but I want to share the systemd unit file I wrote.
[Unit] Description=Hugo webserver After=network.target After=nginx.service [Service] User=hugo Group=hugo Type=simple ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/hugo server --source /home/hugo -b https://tech.cccp.io/ --canonifyURLs --log --logFile /home/hugo/logs/hugo.log --appendPort=false ProtectSystem=yes ProtectHome=no NoNewPrivileges=yes PrivateTmp=yes [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
This command line allow me to reverse proxy it with Nginx and serve it on the URL you’re seeing now.
