Hugo + Netlify = So Easy !
I deployed a website on Netlify
This website is made with the famous framework Hugo.
Who is Hugo ?
Hugo is a very popular open-source static site generator. Hugo is written in Golang.
Is it easy to use ?
Hugo is very easy to use.
I was looking for a fast and easy solution for my website.
I wanted a place to take some notes white i am studying for the AWS Developer associate certification.
I am really interested about Golang and i heard about Hugo, so i tried it.
What is Netlify ?
Netlify is a platform that offers hosting and serverless backend services for web applications and static websites.
Where to start ?
I just followed the Quick start
brew install hugo
hugo new site <name_of_your_site>
Then i chose a theme here :
cd <name_of_your_site> git init git submodule add https://github.com/pathOfThethemeYouLike
echo 'theme = "..."' >> config.toml
Then I started to write my first post
hugo new posts/my-first-post.md
I pushed the code to github.
And boom ! That was it !
Is it hard to deploy Hugo on Netlify ?
It’s super easy !
On the hosting and deployment section of the Hugo documentation, you can find all the details to help you deploy your Hugo app on Netlify.
Check it out : gohugo.io/hosting-and-deployment/hosting-on..
It takes like 5 minutes to deploy your app.
And now, everytime i want to update my website, i juste have to push a new commit, and it's updated just like that :)
