Difference between public and build directories?

When I build my Hugo site locally, I notice that in addition to the ‘public’ directory, whose purpose I understand, a ‘build’ directory has also appeared. The content of the two is slightly different. What is the purpose of the ‘build’ directory?

In its default configuration, Hugo does not create a “build” directory. Search your site configuration, build scripts, etc.

You’re right. Turns out it was added by CodeKit, because I had made a mistake in the CodeKit settings. My bad.
