Best Way to Rebuild on PublishDate

I wonder what is the way you would suggest for keeping Hugo content up to date when using publishDay front matter parameter to delay publication of content.
For example I would like to build my blog using Hugo, but I plan to delay my content: I write posts en bloc but for people reading my RSS feed I would like the content to be live the time I specify.
I currently use Hugo to deliver the static pages.

One way I did have in mind was to run a second hugo process for building repeatedly in a cron-like fashion while the first process is still delivering. Are there better ways to accomplish this?

You have to think of the “hugo server” and “hugo” as two separate products, so yes – your thinking makes sense.

  • Run hugo server to serve the files
  • Run hugo every n minutes to rebuild the site
