Hugo

So instead of attempting to rebuild a ruby environment for Jenkins when I flattened and recreated my local lab setup I’ve decided to jump over to using hugo instead. This was mostly down to the fact that it’s a single binary and it’s hard enough to motivate myself into posting let alone when I need to fight ruby dependencies.

Installation

Install from repo.

  apt-get install hugo

Done.

Import setup from jekyll

hugo import jekyll foo bar
Importing...
Congratulations! 8 post(s) imported!
Now, start Hugo by yourself:
$ git clone https://github.com/spf13/herring-cove.git bum/themes/herring-cove
$ cd bar
$ hugo server --theme=herring-cove

Choose a theme

For some reason hugo comes without a default theme. So one of the first steps will be to install one.

A show case exists at http://themes.gohugo.io/ or there is an curated repo https://github.com/spf13/hugoThemes. Clone one into ./themes and run

hugo server --theme=<THEME-NAME>

And unless you have any firewall shenangans setup you will be able to view your site on http://127.0.0.1:1313
