hugo v0.57.2 releases: A Fast and Flexible Static Site Generator built with love in GoLang


Hugo is a static HTML and CSS website generator written in Go. It is optimized for speed, ease of use, and configurability. Hugo takes a directory with content and templates and renders them into a full HTML website.

Hugo relies on Markdown files with front matter for metadata, and you can run Hugo from any directory. This works well for shared hosts and other systems where you don’t have a privileged account.

Hugo renders a typical website of moderate size in a fraction of a second. A good rule of thumb is that each piece of content renders in around 1 millisecond.

Hugo is designed to work well for any kind of website including blogs, tumbles, and docs.


Changelog v0.57.2

Hugo 0.57.0 had some well-intended breaking changes. And while they made a lot of sense, one of them made a little too much noise.

This release reverts the behavior for .Pages on the home page to how it behaved in 0.56, but adds a WARNINGtelling you what to do to prepare for Hugo 0.58.

In short, .Page home will from 0.58 only return its immediate children (sections and regular pages).

In this release it returns .Site.RegularPages. So to prepare for Hugo 0.58 you can either use .Site.RegularPages in your home template, or if you have a general list.html or RSS template, you can do something like this:

{{- $pctx := . -}}
{{- if .IsHome -}}{{ $pctx = .Site }}{{- end -}}
{{- $pages := $pctx.RegularPages -}}
