The website is a static website built with the static site generator Hugo. As CSS framework we use Bulma.

Arch Linux sudo pacman -S hugo
Fedora sudo yum install hugo

And you need Yarn

git clone
yarn install


Command Function
./ Build for online deployment (into ./upload/) and upload using lftp

Audio files

The audio files for the CA Ausstellung are way to big to put them in the Git project. Also having them in the content folder makes hugo considerably slower just because theyre huge. Therefore they have to be put into the web space by hand. Into the /audio/ folder.


You can use the following custom shortcodes in the content markdown files to get programmatic content blocks:

Shortcode function
{{< img src="" alt="" attr="" />}} Includes an image and adds the modal popup. Note the trailing slash!
{{< pdf src="" width="" height="" >}} Embeds a PDF.
{{< audio ### >}} Embeds a audio file.
{{< quotes source="" size="" >}} Prints a grid of quotes. Source team or supporters. Data can be added/edited in data/quotes_team.toml and data/quotes_supporters.toml
{{< timeline >}} Prints the timeline. Data can be added/edited in data/timeline.toml
{{< partners >}} Prints the list of partners. Data can be added/edited in data/partners.toml
{{< hausprojekt-boxes >}} Outputs the menu boxes for the house projekt pages
