However, due to historical reasons, I want to keep my FreeBox along with the Multiposte FreeTV service where I could watch TV on PCs connected to the network.

Bye Drupal, welcome HugoAugust 2016

It has been a long time. Way too long. Update from update, Drupal was less and less a good solution for this website. I don’t update it that often, for starters. Secondly, Drupal was horribly slow and cumbersome. While I agree that Drupal can be an excellent choice for bigger websites, it’s simply not adapted to simple portfolio type websites. As a programmer, I was instanntly seduced by the approach of static sites generators: at last, my content would be easily viewable (the whole point of Drupal was to have the content separated from the HTML, as it was in the first iterations of the site). I setted on Hugo because I liked the fact it was fast, is using not to complicated templating system (even though it seems there is quite a bit different manners of doing the same thing) and is usable only with one executable. I don’t like the idea to pull the earth on my laptop just to compile a few webpages, going with go is perfect.
