Latest commit

We already have a lot of site building benchmarks. The main problem with adding the "Hugo site docs" to the list is that it cannot easiliy  be compared to any previous release, because its content/template/whatever has changed.

This reverts commit 837e084.

GoDoc Linux and macOS Build Status Go Report Card

Overview

Hugo is a static HTML and CSS website generator written in Go. It is optimized for speed, ease of use, and configurability. Hugo takes a directory with content and templates and renders them into a full HTML website.

Hugo relies on Markdown files with front matter for metadata, and you can run Hugo from any directory. This works well for shared hosts and other systems where you don’t have a privileged account.

Hugo renders a typical website of moderate size in a fraction of a second. A good rule of thumb is that each piece of content renders in around 1 millisecond.

Hugo is designed to work well for any kind of website including blogs, tumbles, and docs.

Supported Architectures

Currently, we provide pre-built Hugo binaries for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, DragonFly BSD, Open BSD, macOS (Darwin), and Android for x64, i386 and ARM architectures.

Hugo may also be compiled from source wherever the Go compiler tool chain can run, e.g. for other operating systems including Plan 9 and Solaris.

Complete documentation is available at Hugo Documentation.

Choose How to Install

If you want to use Hugo as your site generator, simply install the Hugo binaries. The Hugo binaries have no external dependencies.

To contribute to the Hugo source code or documentation, you should fork the Hugo GitHub project and clone it to your local machine.

Finally, you can install the Hugo source code with go, build the binaries yourself, and run Hugo that way. Building the binaries is an easy task for an experienced go getter.

Use the installation instructions in the Hugo documentation.

Prerequisite Tools

Fetch from GitHub

Since Hugo 0.48, Hugo uses the Go Modules support built into Go 1.11 to build. The easiest is to clone Hugo in a directory outside of GOPATH, as in the following example:

mkdir $HOME/src
cd $HOME/src
git clone https://github.com/gohugoio/hugo.git
cd hugo
go install

If you are a Windows user, substitute the $HOME environment variable above with %USERPROFILE%.

If you want to compile with Sass/SCSS support use --tags extended and make sure CGO_ENABLED=1 is set in your go environment. If you don't want to have CGO enabled, you may use the following command to temporarily enable CGO only for hugo compilation:

CGO_ENABLED=1 go install --tags extended

The Hugo Documentation

The Hugo documentation now lives in its own repository, see https://github.com/gohugoio/hugoDocs. But we do keep a version of that documentation as a git subtree in this repository. To build the sub folder /docs as a Hugo site, you need to clone this repo:

git clone git@github.com:gohugoio/hugo.git
