In my recent posts, I spent a lot of time talking about Hugo and Static Websites in Azure.

I've now finished converting the content from this existing blog over to Hugo, underpinned by:

  • Azure Static Websites
  • Azure Storage
  • Azure DevOps
  • Azure Functions
  • Cloudflare CDN

It's now available to preview at https://beta.cirriustech.co.uk - go give it a try!

I'll likely be moving the root domain over to the new site within the next week.

Before I do - a quick list of what's new/better/different.

New/Better

  • Sharing : You can now share any post to Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn direct from the navigation bar at the bottom of the page (also visible when scrolling up).
  • Dynamic Sidebar/Header Bar depending on screen size/orientation.
  • Sidebar hides when viewing posts so you get to view them full width. Menu always available via the hamburger menu top-left.
  • More links in the menu/sidebar for my social pages.
  • Improved page load times!

Changes

  • Whilst the blog URLs haven't changed, URLs for tag pages have changed e.g. from ../tag:hugo#body-wrapper to ../tags/hugo/.
  • RSS feed URL will change from https://cirriustech.co.uk/blog.atom or https://cirriustech.co.uk/blog.rss to https://cirriustech.co.uk/index.xml.

I hope you like the new look!
