The following steps are here to help you initialize your new website. If you don’t know Hugo at all, we strongly suggest you learn more about it by following this great documentation for beginners .

Basic configuration

When building the website, you can set a theme by using --theme option. However, we suggest you modify the configuration file (config.toml) and set the theme as the default.

# Change the default theme to be use when building the site with Hugo
theme = "Docbox"

Feel free to edit thoses files by adding some sample content and replacing the title value in the beginning of the files.

Launching the website locally

Launch by using the following command:

command line
yarn test

Go to http://localhost:1313/site/

Build the website

When your site is ready to deploy, run the following command:

command line
yarn build

A public folder will be generated, containing all static content and assets for your website. It can now be deployed on any web server.

This website can be automatically published and hosted with Netlify (Read more about Automated HUGO deployments with Netlify ). Alternatively, you can use Github pages
