Hmmm, that looks pretty technical to me...

Any chance of doing something nice and easy in WordPress or similar?

Just asking :-)

I cannot speak for those owning this project.

Hugo is most certainly a much simpler solution from a maintenance perspective. Wordpress (and similar CMSes) is a nightmare to maintain and always devolves into a mess of plugins (that everyone is too afraid to change/deactivate for fear of breaking the site), custom PHP snippets galore, horrible WYSIWYG battles, and a general feeling of dread for ever updating/changing Wordpress. So long as reliance on JavaScript is kept to a minimum, this will be a win for's maintainability and performance (and likely SEO).

As for Git, this technical barrier is a downside for those unfamiliar: Those in charge of content may very well not be comfortable with Git. I should hope that the owners of this project solicited feedback from those in charge of the site content. It's important that they are comfortable with such a workflow.

If it weren't for merge conflicts and other VCS-isms I would argue that learning simple markdown files + a Git GUI would be miles simpler that learning how to use Wordpress... :)
