Choose your hugo theme or build your own.
Add some config by editing
then, start your dev server
hugo server -D
The server will start in watch mode. it means the browser will refresh when you edit your files.
You can now add some content by executing this commande:
hugo new posts/hello-world.md
this will create a file under content folder, as you name it. In this cas, it will be ‘content/posts/hello-world.md’.

hugo server -wDs path/of/dev-folder -d path/of/prod-folder
