But how can we handle POST requests? It is fairly simple.

What I really need is a way to serve database tables for reading and writing - CRUD operations. This post will walk you though serving a table for reading only.

I installed Hugo, got the server running and was able to build a site with a template. I did not however, get it running on GitHub. My repo was a mess - it had become my dumping ground. I decided to clean up my repo and make it solely for my blog and would put all of my code in an appropriate repo. When the time came to start blogging with Hugo, I had stumbled on to Strapdown.js. I would have ignored it, but it seemed so easy. I had to give it a shot. Another reason I gave it a look was because I recently started using Atom as my editor.
