    Hugo via NPM npm CI status

    Plug-and-play binary wrapper for Hugo Extended, the awesomest static-site generator.


    npm install hugo-extended --save-dev
    # or...
    yarn add hugo-extended --dev

    hugo-extended defaults to the extended version of Hugo on supported platforms, and automatically falls back to vanilla Hugo if unsupported (mainly on 32-bit systems).

    This package's version numbers align with Hugo's — hugo-extended@0.64.1 installs Hugo v0.64.1, for example.

    Note: If you'll be using the SCSS features of Hugo Extended, it's probably smart to install postcss, postcss-cli, and autoprefixer as devDependencies too, since they can be conveniently called via built-in Hugo pipes:

    npm install postcss postcss-cli autoprefixer --save-dev
    # or...
    yarn add postcss postcss-cli autoprefixer --dev


    The following examples simply refer to downloading and executing Hugo as a Node dependency. See the official Hugo docs for guidance on actual Hugo usage.
