Nate demonstrates how you can use the built-in Hugo server to quickly preview your site and see updates live as you make changes to the site files.
- [Instructor] Let's take a look…at what the site looks like so far.…In the terminal, I can run hugo server.…This command will build all of the site files,…and then Hugo will post them for us in memory.…Now I can open a browser and go to localhost:1313.…You should see the basic layout and structure of the site.…Hugo is hosting this preview for you…on your local machine, and it's not available…or accessible to anyone else.…If you make changes to the site files,…this preview server will update immediately.…
For example, if we change the header_title property…in the configuration file to something…like my awesome static site, and then save this file,…the preview in the browser is updated…before we even have a chance to switch back.…Hugo updates really fast.…This is looking good so far, but now…it's time to add some real content to the site.…
