I ran into a problem where I can see no obvious solution.
- I have set up Hugo for GitHub pages.
- I use two Hugo environments (development and production) with different config files.
- I generate the development data into
docsand publish it to GitHub to be served as
- I generate the production data into
../public, which is a different repo. I push this repo to GitHub to be served under
The CNAME file that GitHub requires must contain the custom domain, but this domain can have two different values. Yet, when I put the CNAME file into the
static folder it obviously is the same file in both Hugo environments.
How can I generate the CNAME contents from the
baseURL setting in the active config file?
That is, for
hugo -e development, CNAME should contain the base URL from the development config file, that is,
test.myblog.com, and when running
hugo -e production, CNAME should contain
myblog.com from the production config file.
Templates seem to be restricted to particular output types, e.g. .html or .xml files, hence no option here if I am not wrong.
Or did I overlook something obvoius?
