I am in the process of re-creating my professional blog / website using Hugo, and I stumbled upon something that feels like a data race. The problem is that the index page is sometimes blank, like below:
When I run
hugo server, 9 out of 10 times it properly renders the contents, but sometimes it doesn’t. There are two things that surprise me about this:
- Two runs might return different output, even though there are no changes to the files
- Hugo does not show any error in its logs
I have no idea how to debug this, since Hugo doesn’t report any errors, and as far as I can see the contents of the
home.md file are nothing extraordinary. Here is the pull request switching from plain HTML to Hugo, in case you want to take a look at the code. You will notice that there is already a merged pull request switching to Hugo with the exact same commit, but I had to revert it, because when it was deployed by Netlify it had the blank index page.
Can you spot anything abnormal?
Thanks in advance!
