I chose same-ish tools:

  • Hugo
  • Parcel - to combine and minify assets
  • PostCSS - to use modern CSS
  • ganalytics - smaller Google analytics
  • lazysizes - for lazy loading images
  • quicklink - for faster page switch
  • I used simple links instead social widgets (for example, twitter button is about 100kb of JS)
  • Netlify for hosting
  • Cloudflare as CDN and DNS. Cloudflare would allow me to control subdomains and add other DNS records
  • Github to store source code
