Hello everyone,

I would like to learn how to create and manage a static site (with Hugo o similiar) but I’m totally noob and I don’t know where to start.

There is any book, tutorial or website where I can learn something?

Thanks

Here’s a quickstart, tripled :

https://jekyllrb.com/docs/ -> quickstart

https://gohugo.io/getting-started/quick-start/

https://docs.getpelican.com/en/latest/quickstart.html

Learning a bit of markdown comes in handy. And then it is important to learn that when hosting your site for example via a web hoster or shell provider (Tildes etc.) it is a matter of uploading your html files structure in the right place. To play around and experiment with the latter you could self host a web site locally on computer or a rpi or even on an Android phone! For example using http://192.168.0.2/ inside your LAN is totally fine for testing your static site.

if you want to self host (or just in general) and it’s just a static site, check out IPNS, it’s essentially perfect for static websites 😉

What a coincidence! Just last night I started reading this book! https://pragprog.com/titles/bhhugo/build-websites-with-hugo/ I like that the chapters are short and that there are exercises :)

Thank you for the suggestion! I’ve saved the book in my list and I will start to read it.

You don’t need to use codeberg. Github and gitlab will also allow you to host the site.
