Can hugo new create multiple md files?

can hugo new create multiple md files?

If so, how? stringing them up with , or ; didn’t work.

No, you will have to script it.

Not what I hoped for, but thanks for the clarity :wink:

Would be useful to have the ‘single file only’ in the docs though.

In the meantime I used this notepad++ workaround, created a archy.txt and used that inside the target folder:

Another way to create multiple files without scripting, would be to use an editor with multiple cursors to insert the command hugo new at the beginning of each line.

Then simply copy and paste the contents of the file in a terminal window and watch it work.

(the last command in the list would need you to hit the enter key so that it executes)

There are probably a few methods that can be used. Now, 15 Minutes later, I tried the notepad++ method on a few folders and it works brilliantly.

I create an archy.txt with whatever pre-format (archetype etc) I need.

Then create the list of *.md files

In notepad++ use alt+c to add copy archy.txt in front of the filenames

Save the created file list as run.bat und run it in CMD

This was a rather stupid suggestion. Here is a clean hugo way

  1. Create a text file list of *.md files in root
  2. In notepad++ use alt+c to add hugo new in front of the filenames
  3. Save the created file list as run.bat und run it in CMD
