1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade hugo -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade hugo -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Go Report Card


Hugo is a static HTML and CSS website generator written in [Go][].
It is optimized for speed, easy use and configurability.
Hugo takes a directory with content and templates and renders them into a full HTML website.

Hugo relies on Markdown files with front matter for meta data.
And you can run Hugo from any directory.
This works well for shared hosts and other systems where you don’t have a privileged account.

Hugo renders a typical website of moderate size in a fraction of a second.
A good rule of thumb is that each piece of content renders in around 1 millisecond.

Hugo is designed to work well for any kind of website including blogs, tumbles and docs.

Contributing to Hugo

We welcome contributions to Hugo of any kind including documentation, themes,
organization, tutorials, blog posts, bug reports, issues, feature requests,
feature implementations, pull requests, answering questions on the forum,
helping to manage issues, etc.

The Hugo community and maintainers are very active and helpful, and the project benefits greatly from this activity.

Asking Support Questions

We have an active discussion forum where users and developers can ask questions.
Please don't use the Github issue tracker to ask questions.

Reporting Issues

If you believe you have found a defect in Hugo or its documentation, use
the Github issue tracker to report the problem to the Hugo maintainers.
If you're not sure if it's a bug or not, start by asking in the discussion forum.
When reporting the issue, please provide the version of Hugo in use (hugo version).

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.

0.30 October 16th 2017

Hugo 0.30 is the Race Car Edition. Hugo is already very very fast, but much wants more. So we added Fast Render Mode. It is hard to explain, so start the Hugo development server with hugo server and start editing. Live reloads just got so much faster! The "how and what" is discussed at length in other places, but the short version is that we now re-render only the parts of the site that you are working on.

The second performance-related feature is a follow-up to the Template Metrics added in Hugo 0.29. Now, if you add the flag --templateMetricsHints, we will calculate a score for how your partials can be cached (with the partialCached template func).

This release also more or less makes the really fast Chroma highlighter a complete alternative to Pygments. Most noteable is the new table linenos support (7c30e2cb @bep #3915), which makes copy-and-paste code blocks much easier.

This release represents 31 contributions by 10 contributors to the main Hugo code base.
@bep leads the Hugo development with a significant amount of contribution, but also a big shoutout to @moorereason, @digitalcraftsman, and @bmon for their ongoing contributions.
And as always a big thanks to @digitalcraftsman for his relentless work on keeping the documentation and the themes site in pristine condition.

Many have also been busy writing and fixing the documentation in hugoDocs,
which has received 26 contributions by 15 contributors. A special thanks to @bep, @digitalcraftsman, @moorereason, and @kaushalmodi for their work on the documentation site.

Hugo now has:

  • 20195+ stars
  • 454+ contributors
  • 180+ themes


  • Running hugo server will now run with the new "Fast Render Mode" default on. To turn it off, run hugo server --disableFastRender or set disableFastRender=true in your site config.
  • There have been several fixes and enhancements in the Chroma highlighter. One is that it now creates Pygments compatible CSS classes, which means that you may want to re-generate the stylesheet. See the Syntax Highlighting Doc.
