I checked out Hugo – a fast static site generator. Why use a static site generator? Because why would the server have to rebuild the page for every visitor instead of building it once? Especially, if content doesn’t change often. A static site generator compiles the website once and it’s served much faster to visitors.
Anyways, while Hugo seems like a great product, there’s one downside:
As of beginning of 2017, there is no support for removing trailing slashes from URLs, because every page generated by Hugo is a folder with an
mod_rewrite or anything.
