So I’ve been thinking about this on and off for a few years now. I think it might be useful to create a utility tool for Gotham (and thus Hugo). This would be a tool that can do interesting things with a Gotham/Hugo site outside of the standard build or serve the site.
For example there’s been times that I wanted to know in my blog:
- How many unique tags am I using?
- What’s the average word count or reading time across all of my posts?
- In disk storage, how big is my homepage? My entire site?
A tool to answer these questions would be useful. Not only can it be used for the end-user, I would image tools that might want to integrate with a Gotham or Hugo site, such as a vim plugin, a web-based text-editor, a VS Code plugin, etc might want to use this tool in order to power some features of that plugin.
