To be honest, I don't know if Hugo really is better than Jekyll, it's just my personal preference. Plus, this post was not about Hugo vs Jekyll, I wanted to write down tutorial how to set up Hugo ;)

And by initial setup, I meant that to install Jekyll, you need to install Ruby, bundler, jekyll, last time I tried it my laptop just refused to cooperate and it was such a pain to get to the point where I could even create a jekyll project locally. That may have affected my opinion a little ;) Whereas with Hugo, I ran one command and I was ready.

By no means I think Jekyll's bad. I used it for a long time and never had any issues, I just wanted to try something new and I really enjoyed Hugo, that's all :)
