Could Hugo and static site generators work for librarians and communications?

I’m not sure, seems like a whole lot of moving parts, special skills, and the easy ability to accidentally wipe out your entire site. But it’s pretty cool once you have the setup, and if someone is technical and doesn’t mess with the setup too much maybe it would be a great solution.

Static sites sound great – there’s not any moving parts on the live site, and so there’s very little security worries. There’s lots of potential upside in SEO if that’s your thing. The pages load clap-fast. The accessibility is built by humans.

What are the things we have to add?

So… how could we solve for these? Hugo has some great answers.
