Netlify Status PRs Welcome

Hugo Docs

Documentation site for Hugo, the very fast and flexible static site generator built with love in Go.


We welcome contributions to Hugo of any kind including documentation, suggestions, bug reports, pull requests etc. Also check out our contribution guide. We would love to hear from you.

Note that this repository contains solely the documentation for Hugo. For contributions that aren’t documentation-related please refer to the hugo repository.

*Pull requests shall only contain changes to the actual documentation. However, changes on the code base of Hugo and the documentation shall be a single, atomic pull request in the hugo repository.*

Spelling fixes are most welcomed, and if you want to contribute longer sections to the documentation, it would be great if you had the following criteria in mind when writing:

  • Short is good. People go to the library to read novels. If there is more than one way to do a thing in Hugo, describe the current best practice (avoid “… but you can also do …” and “… in older versions of Hugo you had to …”.
  • For example, try to find short snippets that teaches people about the concept. If the example is also useful as-is (copy and paste), then great. Don’t list long and similar examples just so people can use them on their sites.
  • Hugo has users from all over the world, so easy to understand and simple English is good.


  • The master branch is where the site is automatically built from, and is the place to put changes relevant to the current Hugo version.
  • The next branch is where we store changes that are related to the next Hugo release. This can be previewed here:


To view the documentation site locally, you need to clone this repository:

git clone
