Already before I set up this website using Hugo, I wanted to integrate Mastodon comments into the posts. I had already come across this implementation by Carl Schwan before, and it seems to work really well. Integrating it was fairly straightforward, and is already explained in his post. I modified it a bit to remove the dialog box and include the core of those instructions in the comment section preamble. Aside from that, I was happy with the original setup as a starting point.

I got really tired of my WordPress website, so I decided it was time to rebuild the whole thing. Again. I have basically been using it as a static site. In part because I really don’t like using the Gutenberg editor that comes with WordPress. I have tried static site generators before. In particular Jekyll, which I used for some project sites in my previous job. I have also used Sphinx a great deal for writing documentation.
