Hugo in Action

Hugo in Action

Author: Atishay Jain Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/02/2021

Static websites-sites with fixed content-are the simplest type of web pages. In addition to being easier to create and maintain, they're inherently more secure that dynamic pages. And with the Hugo static site engine, you can render them in milliseconds. Hugo in Action is a step-by-step guide to using Hugo to create static websites that really show off the advantages of simplicity. Working with a complete example website and source code samples, you'll learn how to build and host a low-maintenance, high-performance site that will wow your users and stay stable without relying on a third-party server. Key Features * Installing Hugo and building your first web page * Using the Go Template language * Forking themes * Building your own APIs For web developers with intermediate knowledge of HTML/CSS and basic knowledge of JavaScript. About the technology With the Hugo engine, you can build and render static web pages in milliseconds. Written in Go, the Hugo engine takes your directory of content and templates and renders it as a full HTML and CSS website. It uses Markdown files for its data, making it quick to code, capable of running from any directory, and a great choice when working on a shared system where you don't have full privileges. Perfect for blogs, documentation, and portfolio sites, Hugo makes web development fast and fun again. Atishay Jain is a Senior Computer Scientist at Adobe, who has developed web-based software used by millions of Adobe Creative Cloud customers on a daily basis.
