Hugo Companion App for Mac: Skeletron Feedback & Beta Sign Up

#1

Hey everybody, my name is Hanno and I’ve been working on a native Mac app that makes it (even) easier to work with Hugo.

It basically bundles Hugo, a simple front matter aware markdown editor with drag and drop image support and a Git client for pushing changes to a repository (I currently use it to trigger a deploy to Netlify, but would be really interested in what other setups are common).

You can get some more info here: https://skeletron.app and sign up for the beta if you like. Let me know what you think!

Hello @hanonno

The screenshot looks very promising and I have just signed up for the Beta.

Thanks! I’ve sent you an invitation to the beta slack. Looking forward to your feedback!

#4

It looks really nice. Will it support direct Netlify deployment (without going through Github)?

#5

Probably not in the first version. But it should be possible. Exporting to a directory on your file system will definitely be supported in V1.

How exactly would you imagine it to work?

The screenshot looks really nice, and I can see how it might make my workflows more effecient. I’ve submitted my email—looking forward to giving it a try!

I really like the way the previews of the pages look and rendered from the go templates - would love to give this a try if you want some feedback, have submitted my email for the beta version. Will this be an open source project you plan to share on GitHub?

Thanks! I’m slowly adding people to the beta, so expect something in the following weeks. I plan on selling the app and have no plans to open source it for now.

Thanks @hanonno. I’d submitted my email and hadn’t heard anything, so it’s good to know that there’ll be a small weight. Looking forward to trying it out…(and buying later on!).
