Hello. I deployed my first Hugo website to Netlify. It is just a test
I can’t wrap my head around the “publishDir” option. If I understood correctly it is set to “public” by default. What purpose does that “public” directory have? The documentation says:
The directory to where Hugo will write the final static site (the HTML files etc.).
I might be stupid but I still don’t get it. I don’t have a “public” folder in my repository yet my website builds and displays well. Do I need that “public” folder?
I would be grateful for any suggestion.
