  • some static assets like images into the static/* folder

Create a new blog entry

You can use hugo new blog/ command and then edit it. Or just copy an already existing blog entry, and update the content.

Update the theme

If you need to touch file of the theme (i.e. into ./themes/devfest-theme-hugo/) you to know one more thing:

The theme is in another Git repository, it's using git submodules, so you need to handle this two repository.

So this is an example of workflow:

  • install last NodeJS and yarn, see here and yarn
  • go into the theme folder ./themes/devfest-theme-hugo/
  • install dependencies with yarn
  • run npm start to launch automatically the build when a file change
  • (you still need to launch hugo server into the site folder)
  • then build an optimized version with npm run build
  • then create the PR (or push)
  • into the site folder, git add themes/devfest-theme-hugo
  • then create the PR (or push)


To publish the site on firebase, just run firebase deploy. Note that you need to authenticate once with firebase login YOU DON'T NEED to publish manually the website, it's already done by pushing on develop or master branches.

You could take a look at the .gitlab-ci.yml file
