Good evening everyone,
I’m using v. 0.62.0, and I’m trying to understand how to generate a page from a data file (JSON, TOML, whatever). I don’t want to generate multiple pages from a single data file (as asked here); I just want to be able to print the data inside that single page.
As I understand, it should be possible because in the Page Bundles page it says the index file name’s extension of a Leaf Bundle can be
json or any other valid MIME type. If I create an
index.md containing just the front matter, the html page is generated. If I, however, rename the
index.json, Hugo does not generate the page, nor output any error.
An acceptable workaround would be having an
index.md file and a separate data file that gets loaded by the page template. However, I didn’t find a way to load a data file that’s not stored inside the
data folder. I’d prefer to keep data files inside the Leaf Bundle folder.
Am I missing something?
