Docker Stars Docker Pulls Docker Automated build

fundor333/hugo is a Docker base image for static sites generated with Hugo fork from publysher/hugo.

Images derived from this image can either run as a stand-alone server, or function as a volume image for your web server.

For my personal use I make smaller the image of publysher because I use it in my automation service and I want a more fast pipeline.


The image is based on the following directory structure:

. ├── Dockerfile └── site ├── config.toml ├── content │   └── ... ├── layouts │   └── ... └── static └── ...

In other words, your Hugo site resides in the site directory, and you have a simple Dockerfile:

FROM fundor333/hugo

Building your site

Based on this structure, you can easily build an image for your site:

docker build -t my/image .

Your site is automatically generated during this build.

Using your site

There are two options for using the image you generated:

  • as a stand-alone image
  • as a volume image for your webserver

Using your image as a stand-alone image is the easiest:

docker run -p 1313:1313 my/image

This will automatically start hugo server, and your blog is now available on http://localhost:1313.

If you are using boot2docker, you need to adjust the base URL:

docker run -p 1313:1313 -e HUGO_BASE_URL=http://YOUR_DOCKER_IP:1313 my/image

The image is also suitable for use as a volume image for a web server, such as nginx

docker run -d -v /usr/share/nginx/html --name site-data my/image docker run -d --volumes-from site-data --name site-server -p 80:80 nginx
