You will need these packages:

Using asciidoctor is a requirement, because the original asciidoc runs into trouble parsing the adoc files with TOML headers in them. asciidoctor also has a few extra features for web pages.


Execute the hugo command in the repository root to build and serve the files for development:

hugo server -w -v

Observe the console output as it will tell you the address where the page is accessible in a browser. The -w flag tells it to watch the filesystem for changes to rebuild automatically. Also, the page in the browser will autorefresh once the rebuild completes successfully.
