First steps creating a blog with Hugo

I've always wanted to try out Hugo.

Turns out it's so simple even a kid can get started

First you install by following the instructions at

Then, you create a new Hugo project scaffold by using the Hugo CLI.

hugo new site quickstart

You create a new content by doing:

hugo new posts/

Using Markdown you can edit the file with your favorite text editor, in my case, vim.

$  vim posts/

To publish or build your site

$  hugo

Depending on your Config Options , by default it will "publish" the built files into the publish/ directory.

That's basically it, you now have a new static blog with Hugo!
