GitHub Actions for Hugo

GitHub Actions for Hugo

This Hugo Setup Action can install Hugo to a virtual machine of GitHub Actions. Hugo extended version, Hugo Modules, Linux (Ubuntu), macOS, and Windows are supported.

From v2, this Hugo Setup Action has migrated to a JavaScript (TypeScript) action. We no longer build or pull a Hugo docker image. Thanks to this change, we can complete this action in less than a few seconds. (A docker base action was taking about 1 min or more execution time to build and pull a docker image.)

OS (runs-on) ubuntu-18.04 macos-latest windows-2019

Getting started

⭐️ Create your workflow

An example workflow .github/workflows/gh-pages.yml with GitHub Actions for GitHub Pages. For the first deployment, we have to do this operation: First Deployment with GITHUB_TOKEN - peaceiris/actions-gh-pages

peaceiris/actions-gh-pages - GitHub

name: github pages

on:
  push:
    branches:
      - master

jobs:
  deploy:
    runs-on: ubuntu-18.04
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
        with:
          submodules: true  # Fetch Hugo themes (true OR recursive)
          fetch-depth: 0    # Fetch all history for .GitInfo and .Lastmod

      - name: Setup Hugo
        uses: peaceiris/actions-hugo@v2
        with:
          hugo-version: '0.71.1'
          # extended: true

      - name: Build
        run: hugo --minify

      - name: Deploy
        uses: peaceiris/actions-gh-pages@v3
        with:
          github_token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
          publish_dir: ./public

Options

⭐️ Use Hugo extended

Set extended: true to use a Hugo extended version.

- name: Setup Hugo
  uses: peaceiris/actions-hugo@v2
  with:
    hugo-version: '0.71.1'
    extended: true

⭐️ Use the latest version of Hugo

Set hugo-version: 'latest' to use the latest version of Hugo.

- name: Setup Hugo
  uses: peaceiris/actions-hugo@v2
  with:
    hugo-version: 'latest'

This action fetches the latest version of Hugo by hugo | Homebrew Formulae

Tips

⭐️ Read Hugo version from file

How to sync a Hugo version between a Docker Compose and a GitHub Actions workflow via .env file.

Write a HUGO_VERSION to the .env file like the following and push it to a remote branch.

HUGO_VERSION=0.71.1

Next, add a step to read a Hugo version from the .env file.

    - name: Read .env
      id: hugo-version
      run: |
        . ./.env
        echo "::set-output name=HUGO_VERSION::${HUGO_VERSION}"

    - name: Setup Hugo
      uses: peaceiris/actions-hugo@v2
      with:
        hugo-version: '${{ steps.hugo-version.outputs.HUGO_VERSION }}'
        extended: true

Here is a docker-compose.yml example.

version: '3'

services:
  hugo:
    container_name: hugo
    image: "peaceiris/hugo:v${HUGO_VERSION}"
    # image: peaceiris/hugo:v${HUGO_VERSION}-mod  # Hugo Modules
    ports:
      - 1313:1313
    volumes:
      - ${PWD}:/src
    command:
      - server
      - --bind=0.0.0.0
      - --buildDrafts

The alpine base Hugo Docker image is provided on the following repository.

peaceiris/hugo-extended-docker: Hugo alpine base Docker image (Hugo extended and Hugo Modules)

⭐️ Workflow for autoprefixer and postcss-cli

Here is an example workflow for the google/docsy Hugo theme. This theme needs autoprefixer and postcss-cli to build a project. The following workflow is tested on google/docsy-example.

name: github pages

on:
  push:
    branches:
      - master

        with:
          submodules: recursive  # Fetch the Docsy theme
          fetch-depth: 0         # Fetch all history for .GitInfo and .Lastmod

      - name: Setup Hugo
        uses: peaceiris/actions-hugo@v2
