I’m looking to use Hugo for an e-commerce site with ~30 000 products. I want to generate a static html file for every product. But if I update a product, is it possible to tell Hugo to only build that specific product page?
It’s for an e-commerce site. If a product is sold out I would want to render a new product page immediately, and also not affect the caching of every other product page.
The initial build time for all the products is not important. Maybe I could run Hugo N amount of times the very first time (and on changes to template/markup), this would let me do ‘incremental’ builds of product pages.
I want a Kafka consumer to build a new product page if any of the essential product data changes. For example:
- product goes in/out of stock
- product stock state changes (3 potential states: “few in stock”, “in stock”, “20+ in stock”)
- a product variant (most likely different colours) goes in/out of stock.
There are really not that much dynamic content on a product page of a ecommerce site, I really wanna avoid server side rendering, because of cache advantage, performance and simplicity.
Any input is appreciated.
There are commercial embedded shopping carts if you don’t want to do it yourself.
Edit: You’d also need a database server if you want to plan for concurrency.
