The world’s fastest static website engine
Written in Go (aka Golang)
Runs on macOS, Windows, Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD
Really, anything you can get to run the Go compiler can use HUGO
Install HUGO as a binary and run it anywhere
Step One: Give HUGO the
hugo new command
hugo new site my-great-site
This creates a new folder with the basic skeleton for your site in whatever directory you call it in.
Step Two: Add a Theme
git clone https://github.com/spf13/hyde
Step Four: Site Configuration
baseURL = "https://mygreatsite.org/" languageCode = "en-us" title = "My Great Site" theme = "hyde"
Inside of config.toml...
Step Three: Add some content
hugo new post/my-first-post.md
Step Five: Start up the HUGO server
hugo server -D
Default server location: localhost:1313
You now have a local copy of your site with auto-reload out of the box. The
-D flag makes sure that drafts are rendered.
