WordPress to Hugo

Guides and Tool for migrating WordPress sites to Hugo.

What’s the typical workflow to migrate a WP site to Hugo?

Why Hugo?

Hugo is the fastest static site generator, with a really solid, simple way to develop websites. Unlike WordPress, there’s no database or security issues to worry about. It’s very developer-friendly, but anyone wanting a fast, secure website can learn how to use it with a little effort. It has a great community behind it and is frequently being improved. You can run Hugo on any old computer you have available and publish your site to globally fast CDNs. No need to pay for hosting!
