Content with Hugo
All site content in Hugo is written in Markdown, and hosted in the /content folder. The site is built with the file tree and organization of this folder.
Hugo supports basic GitHub Markdown syntax. A helpful guide for Markdown is here. Hugo supports custom shortcodes, which are contained the Writing Guide section of the docs.
Adding a section
Sections in Hugo are subdirectories of the /content folder. In order to add a section, create a subdirectory, for example, 'MySection', then add a _index.md file. All first-level subdirectories from /content are default sections, but any nested sections must include _index.md.
Content is ordered by the weight parameter in the front matter. Hugo arranges lower weights first, and is relative per section.
draft: true in the front matter will not be built when
hugo server is run.
hugo server -D to include drafts.
The site is based off the Hugo Book theme, built by alex-shpak. The NetDocs theme contains custom shortcodes and partial templates, as well as styling customizations and assets not included with the base theme. The layouts directory in the main repo is the final layout override, and contains any site-specific assets. See theme components for information on theme overrides and https://gohugo.io/templates/lookup-order/ for information on Hugo's default lookup order.
