Hugo is a static site generator (SSG) written in Go (aka Golang), a high-performance compiled programming language often used for developing backend applications and services. Today, Hugo is capable of generating most websites within seconds (}}. In our case, we can call the current_year.html shortcode with {{< shortcode_name >}} like so: — title: “2021 08 30 a Sample Post” date: 2021-08-30T13:44:28+09:00 draft: true — This post was created in the year {{< current_year >}}. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Curabitur finibus, velit sit amet vulputate scelerisque, massa turpis fringilla nulla, commodo dapibus urna arcu at nunc. Mauris ultrices convallis ipsum eget facilisis. Curabitur ut rutrum sem. Praesent id nibh non enim mollis porta. Nam mollis, quam et vehicula tristique, lorem ante laoreet orci, sit amet congue tortor nibh sit amet leo. Curabitur lobortis neque tempor, vestibulum lacus nec, condimentum arcu. Nulla fringilla leo sit amet ipsum auctor sagittis. Vivamus aliquam iaculis posuere. Pellentesque malesuada neque sit amet consectetur fringilla. Curabitur felis tellus, mattis in dui vel, vestibulum tincidunt metus. Mauris eget elit dui. Etiam risus nulla, ultricies vitae molestie quis, placerat in magna. Proin interdum, orci ac auctor ullamcorper, tellus ex porta tortor, suscipit luctus libero odio quis arcu. Phasellus dapibus pellentesque ex eget pulvinar. Proin vitae elit risus. Sed justo nulla, pellentesque eu erat eu, luctus bibendum magna. Curabitur at mi id augue egestas condimentum sed quis lectus. Aenean fringilla nisl sed tincidunt tristique. Cras scelerisque laoreet sapien a faucibus. Vivamus a vehicula arcu. Duis rutrum, massa eu tincidunt eleifend, est nulla faucibus nisl, sit amet consectetur neque velit at velit. Integer fermentum augue ut orci iaculis aliquet. Ut in gravida magna. If you view the post in the web browser, you should see the current year in the first line of the post like so: Use a Hugo shortcode to auto-generate the current year. How to Add Images to a Post in Hugo Unlike WordPress and other full-fledged content management systems, Hugo doesn’t include a drag-and-drop system for managing images. Thus, designing an image management system is offloaded to the end-user. While Hugo has no standardized way of managing images, one popular method relies on storing images in the /static folder and referencing them in posts and pages using a shortcode. Let’s walk through how you can do basic image organization in Hugo. The first thing we’ll need to do is create an organizational structure for our image library. While this sounds complex, all that’s required is the creation of a few additional directories within the /static folder. Let’s start by creating an uploads folder in /static. Within the uploads folder, create a folder named 2021 to hold all the images uploaded in 2021. Image management in Hugo. Next, let’s add two images (blue1.jpg and blue2.jpg) into the 2021 folder. Adding images to the “2021” folder. In HTML, images are displayed using the tag. For instance, to display blue1.jpg, we can use the HTML below: While it’s possible to add this HTML directly to the Markdown content file, it’s better to create a shortcode that you can use to display any image from the uploads folder. This way, if you ever need to update the img tag, you can edit the shortcode template without editing each instance of the img tag. To create the shortcode template, create a new file at /layouts/shortcodes/img.html with the content below:  » Read More

Is the Dynamic Island plain stupid or the next revolutionary UX pattern?


Let's talk about Web Design

The term "web design" describes the layout of websites that are seen online. Instead of software development, it typically refers to the user experience components of website development. The primary focus of web design used to be creating websites for desktop browsers, but from the middle of the 2010s, designing for mobile and tablet browsers has gained significance.

What is a webdesigner?

A web designer is responsible for a website's look, feel, and occasionally even content. For instance, appearance refers to the colors, text, and images utilized. Information's organization and categorization are referred to as its layout. An effective web design is user-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and appropriate for the target audience and brand of the website. Many websites focus on keeping things simple so that viewers won't be distracted or confused by additional information and functionality. Removing as many potential sources of user annoyance as possible is a crucial factor to take into account because the foundation of a web designer's output is a site that gains and nurtures the trust of the target audience.

Responsive and adaptive design are two of the most popular techniques for creating websites that function well on both desktop and mobile devices. In adaptive design, the website content is fixed in layout sizes that correspond to typical screen sizes, while in responsive design, information moves dynamically based on screen size. A layout that is as consistent as possible across devices is essential to preserving user engagement and trust. Designers must be cautious when giving up control of how their work will appear because responsive design can be challenging in this area. While they might need to diversify their skill set if they are also in charge of the content, they will benefit from having complete control over the final output.

What does a web design worker do?

A web designer is a member of the IT industry who is in charge of planning a website's structure, aesthetic appeal, and usability.

A skilled site designer must possess both technical know-how and creative graphic design abilities. They must be able to envision how a website will seem (its graphical design) and how it will operate (conversion of a design into a working website).

The terms web developer and designer are frequently used interchangeably but erroneously. In order to construct more complex interactions on a website, such as the integration with a database system, a web developer is frequently more likely to be a software developer who works with programming languages.
