Hugo, despite being an excellent static site generator for literally any other use case, makes it unreasonably difficult to get a single page of unformatted, uncomplicated, HTML serving to your
localhost. As a result people, myself included, often pick it up, fiddle with it for 5 minutes, and then set it down again, because the theming is just too complicated.
Hence this repo. It contains two scripts in the
README.md - one that initializes a new theme from scratch which actually shows the Markdown we wrote in
_index.md upon running
hugo server -D, and one of which pulls in the repo itself as a submodule (although that is neither necessary nor recommended - this is literally the Minimum Viable Theme.)
