I didn’t have a good process to add film photos to my Hugo static site with consistent tags to serve as metadata for camera, film, developer, format, etc. so I cobbled together a small Bash script to collect some input and create a folder as a Hugo `page bundle` but it was a very manual process still and the tag template soon became tedious to maintain.

I discovered Gum and decided to play with it to see if it would improve my post creation experience and it has been pretty good during my brief testing.

That’s what lead to the creation of filmPoster: A Gum powered interactive Bash script to create Hugo film photo posts.
