    I'm pretty obsessed with Hugo. Blazing fast.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "at scale", my largest Hugo build generates ~700 files and deploys live on Netlify in about 2 minutes.

    I find it to be way less convoluted than Gatsby. No plugins and great tools out of the box. Currently there is ONE single issue that still has me looking for other solutions, which is generating content from external data sources (https://github.com/gohugoio/hugo/issues/5074)

    I've also been using it for my latest sunrise project. And here's a film festival I run that uses Hugo.

    Along with Hugo I use IMGIX for image hosting and Algolia for search. Additionally, I'm running and hosting all of this for free, other than IMGIX which starts at $5/month.

    However, I did want to pose the question a few days ago, "If I don't use React, am I still a developer?" however Designernews is not the place for that conversation.
