Error building site - hugo server --renderStaticToDisk

Good afternoon, I’m trying to try out the new hybrid mode. Writes errors “Error: Error building site”. Swears at scripts and styles that are rendered in the assets folder.

I try this and I can confirm it is running normal

hugo server --renderStaticToDisk
Start building sites …

This is not really helpful to debug your issue. What exactly is the error message coming up? Maybe add a link to your repository so we can run it locally and see what is happening.

The --renderStaticToDisc should not be having any issues with the files in assets, because it does only touch the files in static. So my guess is that something else is going on.

That works alright for all of my sites. If you share your repo, someone can help reproduce the issue and debug.
