I use zola which is pretty much similar to Hugo. It's written in Rust and there's a single binary you can use to convert markdown to static files. The single binary aspect is what attracted me (having been familiar with mdBook), so I recently changed my blog from a Jekyll theme to zola.

Initially, I found it difficult to follow along the documentation (not familiar with web stuff), but then I realized that I can just clone a zola theme I wanted and replace the sample files with my own posts. That sped up things considerably and then I changed a few css settings (with a bit of research online to understand what to look for).

That looks cool. Rust is my next language to learn once I'm done with Go. I'm a fan of both. The single binary install is a big appeal for me as well, same reason i looked at Hugo.

Thanks for mentioning this.
