Cool sites that run Hugo

This is my website made in Hugo. It’s hosted on GitHub Pages, Netlify and CloudFlare Pages (DNS points to here now).

I really like the DoIt theme. My website was previously made with Wordpress.

Next step is converting a big blog from Wordpress to Hugo. It won’t be easy.


@LITUATUI If I can make a plug for a tool I wrote to convert a WordPress XML file to a Hugo content tree, I’ve pointed to it below. If you decide to try it, I recommend that you export as XML, then use the with the download images option enabled before removing the WordPress site so that you have the images in an easily used directory (and links automatically adjusted). If it helps great! If you’d rather not, that is fine as well.


Thanks mate!

The source code of this one is public (Licence unknown):

technical documentation style website for an open source tool.

the Hugo theme itself is open source and the source-code is here: GitHub - pypyr/pypyr-docs: Documentation & product site theme for Hugo static website generator. Very configurable. Dark mode. Tree navigation. News & Updates. No bootstrap, no jquery.

(caveat emptor: the theme obviously works & it’s very configurable, but the theme itself is massively undocumented due to time constraints)


I’m no designer. But thought this hugo project turned out okay.

I suspect that is Algolia (same as Hugo’s docs).

The source is here:

They moved from Webpack to Hugo’s js.Build for the JS builds 12 hours ago. Fingerprinting their resources with SHA-512, and me thinking Hugo’s default SHA-256 was on the long side …

Chris Ferdinandi uses Hugo for all his written material on Vanilla JS:


I was a part of the development that built the Book of Concord website.

The Book of Concord is the confessional faith document for the Lutheran Church.

When I was first brought on to the project, they were considering wordpress, but the site is necessarily massive due to the size of the document.

While discussing content atomization and extensibility, future-proofing the project, and making it widely accessible across multiple platforms, I said that we should separate the content from the design as much as possible, and brought up Hugo.

Any feedback is welcome.

You got all sorted (design and content) and now need to adjust to the users. :raised_hands:
