Hugo is a static HTML and CSS website generator written in Go. It is optimized for speed, easy 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 meta data. 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 and OS X (Darwin) 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 DragonFly BSD, OpenBSD, 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.

Install Hugo as Your Site Generator (Binary Install)

Use the installation instructions in the Hugo documentation.

Build and Install the Binaries from Source (Advanced Install)

Add Hugo and its package dependencies to your go src directory.

go get -v github.com/spf13/hugo

Once the get completes, you should find your new hugo (or hugo.exe) executable sitting inside $GOPATH/bin/.

To update Hugo’s dependencies, use go get with the -u option.

go get -u -v github.com/spf13/hugo
