Getting Started with Hugo

Step 2. Build the Docs

Hugo has its own example site which happens to also be the documentation site you are reading right now.

Follow the following steps:

  1. Clone the Hugo repository

Corresponding pseudo commands:

git clone
cd hugo
/path/to/where/you/installed/hugo server --source=./docs
> 29 pages created
> 0 tags index created
> in 27 ms
> Web Server is available at http://localhost:1313
> Press ctrl+c to stop

Once you’ve gotten here, follow along the rest of this page on your local build.
