The fastest static site engine in the world
Hugo, the world’s fastest static site generator is steadily gaining traction. Hugo provides a reliable production environment and allows to build fast and secure web applications.
While working on our content, we like to examine the result. To generate an immediate local preview, we run Hugo in server mode.
The content folder structure of our Hugo project lays the foundation for the website (URL) structure. Taxonomies and menu entries in the frontmatter allow the theme to systematically create navigational links.
The Hugo binary runs in a sandbox to offer maximal runtime security while rendering static sites. External dependencies are configured explicitly.

When we work on different Hugo projects, we may want to stick to older Hugo versions for mature projects and still use the recent version for the new ones.
