hugo new outputs front matter in the resulting file in alphabetical order.
Archetype: --- foo: "" bar: "" ---
--- bar: "" foo: "" ---
My expectation would be that the output would respect the order I created in the archetype.
While alphabetical enforces consistency, I think it’s important to control the order to suit the content, particularly for non-technical editors, and even more particularly for more complex content where there’s meaning to the hierarchy (for instance, more important keys, like “title” at the top).
I don’t see any indication or flag for this in the docs. Surprised not to find anything in the forums on this either.
Is there a way to get what I want, or is this a feature request?
