How to Integrate Google Analytics Into Hugo PaperMod Theme

As I’m setting up my shiny new blog, I stuck at Google Analytics integration. It looks like official PaperMod lacks some documentation on this topic. So… there is what worked for me. Don’t use analytics.google.SiteVerificationTag directive. Use only googleAnalytics: G-xxxxxxx directive. Create new file in layouts/_internal/google_analytics.html and paste the entire code snippet you got from GA property setup page. Basically that’s it. This partial will be automatically included in every Hugo page....

My CLI Centric Workflow

For a very long time I was Windows only user. Nor did I liked it, nor did I hated it. I just was somewhat above average user.

Just drop some markdown and you are done. Sounds good. I don’t even plan to customize default theme for now as typography looks good, theme is supported. Like… there is everything I need. Most important goal for me is to start accumulate some content....

SPA Front page application

About the project It’s a SPA kind of web application based on bunch of buzzword technologies, most importantly Web Components. The idea behind picking web components was that over time I will accumulate bunch of reusable components which will be any framework agnostic. At time of creating that project React was the only framework which didn’t support web components, but times might be changed since then. Images TIL Redux features...
