Can we combine GraphQL and Hugo?


#1

I have developed quite a lot of websites with Hugo. The problem I’ve figured out is that I we can’t develop reliable mobile apps with just Hugo static site. I’ve been working with GraphQL (GraphCMS and Graph.cool) and other static generators including Middleman, Gatsby and Spike. I still find Hugo to be a lot better and easier as it has nice features, community and reliability.

Is there any possibility that we can somehow implement GraphQL or Firebase database with Hugo?

Hi!

It’s been a while that I have used Hugo. For this problem, I think there’s a potential workaround that can be considered while finding a solution. If you can build your own generator that converts GraphQL files from the server to markdown && save them directly in the Hugo /content directory, it can be automated and work almost flawlessly!
