BOTD - Blog of the Day

Today’s blog of the day is a special one. It does not deal with cloud, DevOps or distributed systems. The theme of the blog is travel, life of digital nomad and observations on life from a perspective of a smart young woman, working as Online English teacher and travelling a lot while doing so - What makes this blog dear and interesting to me is that it’s author is my daughter Silvia.

Building Hugo as well on GitLab pages

Parallel building challenges Unlike Github, Gitlab considers Hugo blogs first class citizens and does not impose any restrictions on repo naming. I had 3 challenges to overcome related to co-existence of GH and GL versions: I need to use same repo for both GH and GL the submodule link for public does not work on GL the site root is different - I have no custom domain forward for GitLab Using same repo To separate the GH and GL, I have added 2 remotes to repo and special branch gitlab-pages.

Current Hugo setup on Github Pages

How does the blog setup and publishing work Before I forget, here is how the current configuration works. There are two repositories at play: source repo - github pages repo (== GHPR) - The blog source repo contains only source files (.md, static media etc). This repo has usual submodules under the /themes - e.g. /themes/even which is one currently used. The Githup pages repo contains generated static site, with index.
