Hugo in Action: Static sites and dynamic Jamstack apps

Build and deploy a live website in just 30 minutes using Hugo. The Hugo engine lets you rapidly deliver static sites that are low maintenance, high performance, and feature rich.

In Hugo in Action you will learn:

    Building web pages with Hugo and Jamstack
    Creating content using Markdown
    Content management with Hugo
    Designing new Hugo themes
    Using the Go template language
    Managing dependencies with Hugo modules
    Accessing APIs with Jamstack
    Adding a shopping cart using JavaScript
    Content tagging with markup

Sometimes, simple is better. Static websites—sites with fixed content—are easier to create and maintain, and inherently more secure than dynamic pages. Hugo in Action is a hands-on guide to using the Hugo static site engine to render these websites in milliseconds. Working with a complete example website and source code samples, you’ll learn how to build and host a site that will wow users and stay stable without a third-party server. Full coverage of the Jamstack (Javascript, APIs, Markdown) shows how easy it is to add complex features to super-simple sites, including eCommerce shopping carts, dynamic forms, and multilingual options.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the technology

Because they load pre-built pages, static websites are simple, secure, and incredibly fast. With the Hugo static site generator you can build and render a website in seconds without the grind of hand coding the pages. Hugo takes a directory of content and templates and renders it as a full HTML and CSS website—perfect for blogs, documentation, and other sites that don’t require real-time updates.

In Hugo in Action you’ll learn step-by-step how to build efficient, low-maintenance static web sites.
