I am not sure if this is the intended behavior.
# build site hugo # create a file post-build echo "something" > public/foo.txt # test the site locally prior to deployment hugo server
hugo server in the last step, the
foo.txt file is not served.
It works with
hugo server --renderToDisk, but I am wondering if this behavior is intended. It took me a few minutes to figure out why I wasn’t getting the expected results when testing prior to deployment.
EDIT: This is not new behavior. It worked the same way in v0.76.0, and probably earlier.
