Is it no longer possible to build the publish directory outside of site? For example, my config file has always had
publishDir: "../dist" to publish my site alongside site rather than under it.
I find that if I use a relative path after installing
v0.53 the path is ignored and I end up with my site built in
site/public. I’ve reverted back to
v0.52 in the meantime.
I’d like to avoid changing the location of my build directory because other portions of my build (SCSS -> CSS, Browserify, imagemin, etc.) expect the
dist directory to be in a certain location.
Using version 0.54.0 I tested this with the CLI flag:
hugo -d ../dist
And with a
publishDir = "../dist"
It worked both ways for me. I’m on macOS. What OS are you on?
I’m on macOS 10.12.6.
It looks like the CLI flag
--config may have changed slightly? Before, for my production build I ran:
hugo --config=site/config.yml --source=site
When I updated to
v0.53 and beyond that caused my sit to build in
site/public even though I had
publishDir: "../dist" in my config file.
I updated my command to run as:
hugo --config=config.yml --source=site
Now everything is running as expected again. I guess the config flag is relying on the location of source files?
It all depends on which directory you run
Correct, that hadn’t changed between versions. I always run the
hugo command from the root of my project.
hugo --config=site/config.yml source=site <-- used to work, no longer does
hugo --config=config.yml source=site <-- this is how it’s configured after
v0.53 to work in my case
