Cheat Sheet

Hugo Extended Edition sacrifices some of the portability and memory-safety of Go in order to include libsass and WebP support.

If you DON'T need those, check out Hugo (Standard Edition).

How to Switch Between Editions

If you've installed hugo and hugo-extended with Webi, you can switch easily:

webi hugo
switched to 'hugo v0.118.2':
    /Users/aj/.local/bin/hugo => /Users/aj/.local/opt/hugo-v0.118.2/bin/hugo
webi hugo-extended
switched to 'hugo v0.118.2':
    /home/me/.local/bin/hugo => /home/me/.local/opt/hugo-extended-v0.118.2/bin/hugo

Why NOT Use Extended Edition?

The Standard Edition is written and compiled with Go, which means it's binaries:

  • work on all OSes and architectures Go supports (musl, arm, BSD, etc)
  • are more secure against attacks (Go is memory-safe, C languages are not)
  • slightly smaller file size (but... it doesn't really matter)
