New Design and now also in German

The site is barely two months old and already the first redesign is coming.

I didn’t really warm up to the old theme, but luckily Hugo makes it really easy to change the theme. Of course, you’re still going to spend days tinkering to get everything exactly the way you want it, and it’s still not exactly the way I want it, but that will come in time.

Anyway, the site is now based on a modified Hugo Console Theme and, big news, it’s bilingual!

Hugo makes it incredibly easy to create a bilingual site and switch back and forth between languages. This wasn’t a thing I was even considering when I decided to use Hugo, but it’s a happy coincidence now after all.

My plan is to write the posts in German, because I’ve always felt a bit weird writing everything in English (a foreign language for me) and then translating the German posts into English with DeepL. Maybe go over it again so that it sounds like me and not like an AI.

Let’s see how I get on with it. I won’t translate the older posts into German for now, but I think we can live with that.

This is a translation of the original German post made by DeepL and then manually adapted to (hopefully) sound a bit more human
