Difference between `hugo new <my-page>` and creating a file manually?


#1

Hello,

Is there any difference between hugo new <my-page> and creating a file by hand (assuming I manually add the front matter) ?

Thanks

I’m a new user too, but I’m 99.999% certain that there’s no difference. As long as the file you manually create is identical to the automatically created one then you’ll get the same output. There’s no data stored elsewhere.

Cheers,
Ian
