What is Hugo?
Hugo is a popular, open-source framework for building static websites. It’s essentially a command-line tool that takes a structured folder as input for generating websites.
What is Spanner?
Spanner wraps Hugo’s command line interface in a graphical user interface, allowing you to interact with Hugo’s features with just a few clicks.
How do I use Spanner?
Drag and drop a Hugo site. Then, you can start/stop a local Hugo server, or even build and export your site. If you never used Hugo before, you can download this website as a sample project to use with Spanner.
Do I need to install Hugo to use Spanner?
Nope. Spanner comes with the latest major version of Hugo. Currently, it’s bundled with version 0.74.
How do I build a Hugo website?
You can learn to do that via Hugo’s official website. It has extensive documentation for templating, managing content, and troubleshooting.
I still need help!
