Hugo is a static site generator designed for creating websites and blogs. It uses the Go programming language and was created by Steve Francia, Bep, and Spf13. Hugo notably stands out for its speed when processing files to build a website. The program allows developers to create templates to generate HTML content from markdown files along with other source formats. This means that web pages are already pre-built before being requested by a browser, resulting in fast page loads without needing database queries or server-side scripting.
