Sources for blog.radiant3.ca, started from Hugulp starter.

The site is compiled using Hugo and has a custom theme based on Skeleton.

Install Hugo

Follow the instructions.

Install Node

Follow the instructions

If Node is already installed, no further action is required.

(Optional) Install Pygments

If you plan on using syntax highlighting, Hugo's highlight shortcode requires the Pygments library to be available. It can be installed using Pip:

$ pip install Pygments

Install NPM dependencies

After you cloned this repository locally, you need to install all dependencies:

$ npm install

This runs through all dependencies listed in package.json and downloads them to a node_modules folder in your project directory.

This will also install a copy of gulp locally (rather than globally), which is generally preferable

Run gulp

Run the default gulp task with

$ npm run gulp

It will do the following: - The styles, scripts and images tasks get executed first to do the heavy lifting of compressing images and minifying css/js files. - The revision task runs next to fingerprint the optimized assets. - Then the hugo:all task is invoked to generate the static site<br> hugo will run as if invoked like this:

$ hugo --config=./hugo/config.yaml -s ./hugo -d ./public --buildDrafts=true --verbose=true --baseUrl="http://localhost:3000/"
  • The reference:all task replaces all asset ocurrences with their fingerprinted versions
  • Finally, the browser is reloaded so that you can very quickly check the changes you made

Deploying to S3

$ ./deploy_s3.sh destination.s3.bucket

Before deployment, you need to install a few dependencies. See the deploy script's usage instructions for details by running:

$ ./deploy_s3.sh
