This project is long overdue. I’ve been meaning to create my own personal website since I purchased the web domain sergiorosello.com but as a good friend of mine always says, life happens.
This morning I was surfing through the web wen I came across Hugo. It’s slogan
The world’s fastest framework for building websites sold it for me. I wanted to be up and running in no time at all, so I gave it a try. These are the steps I followed, feel free to adapt them to your specific workflow.
- Download Hugo and install it. In my particular system:
pacman -S hugo
- Clone or download the academic repository with git:
git clone https://github.com/sourcethemes/academic-kickstart.git sergiorosello.
sergioroselloshould be replaced with the name you want the directory to have)
- Initialize the theme:
cdinto your directory:
git submodule update --init --recursive
- Start web server:
- Once this is up and running, you can go to localhost:1313 to view your new website!
When you have finished all of these steps, go to academic’s documentation to get started on making it truly yours.
