Help with archetypes

I am trying to use archtypes and haven’t had any success yet.

My directory structure is as follows:

So I guess my question is will archetypes work in multiple levels or only top level directories?
I don’t have a problem with toplevel types.

The documentation mentions --kind but that apparently is not incorporated yet.

Thanks Jim

It’s just top level right now. You can specify both an archetype and an path though with the new command.

Thanks Steve,

what would the command be I just tried the following with no error or no success:

hugo new -k /programming/c/


Hello Steve and JRichards.

I also have the same problem, I have read the hugo documentation about archetypes and I’m still not able to specify an archetype by command hugo new.

What is the correct parameter?

Given that you have archetypes:, and

hugo new --kind="programming" programming/c/

should work with one caveat. If the archetype files are in the theme folder, you have to specify the theme in the config file for it to pull from there.
