Cheat Sheet

Hugo is one of the most popular open-source static site generators. It makes building websites fun again.

Hugo is a simple and fast Jamstack / Static Site Generator (SSG) tool, which comes in two flavors:

Hugo Standard Edition: Fast, Safe, & Runs Almost Everywhere

Hugo Extended Edition: Supports libsass transpilation and WebP encoding, but mixed with unsafe C code and available for fewer OSes and CPU architectures

How to Pick & Switch Editions

You'll need Hugo Extended Edition for:

  • legacy libsass support - if you use templates that require it
    ("dartsass", also known as just "sass", is supported in both)
  • WebP encoding

Use webi hugo-extended and webi hugo to switch between editions.

Use hugo env to determine which edition you're running (Extended Edition references libsass and WebP in the output).

See hugo-extended tips specific to Hugo Extended Edition.
