Learn what the site configuration file is, and why it's an essential part of every Hugo project. Discover how to update a few important configuration properties.
- [Instructor] Every Hugo project contains…a configuration file, usually called config.toml…at the top level of the project structure.…Since you just installed the minimalist theme,…you'll need to make a few changes…to your configuration file.…The easiest way to do this is to expand…the themes folder once again, find the exampleSite folder…and then find the config.toml file…inside of that exampleSite folder.…I'll just select everything in here, copy this…and then go to my top level config.toml file and paste.…
There's a few more updates I need to make.…There's a section here starting on line 11…going to this themesDir property.…We need to just delete all of this.…I'll also update the title of the site…to: My awesome static site.…And for now, I'm going to delete or comment out…this disqusShortname property.…This property is used to enable comments on the site…but we don't need that right now.…At the bottom of this configuration file,…there's a few social-related properties.…
I'll update these to include my actual Twitter handle.…
