“Overwriting default landing page for Hugo taxonomies”. What do I mean by that? By default, Hugo will create a home page or a landing page for your taxonomies. /tags/ or /categories are good examples. If you don’t have any specific templates for tags /layouts/tags/list.html Hugo will use the default one /layouts/_default/list.html and create an index.html for tags implicitly. If you want to change the front-matter for that index page or add some content to it for some reason, you need to create the index page yourself. Now, Hugo will use the file you’ve created.

In my site, I wanted to change “tags” to “archives”. To do that, I’ve created a new file /content/tags/_index.md and changed set a new title property in it’s front-matter. By the way, it doesn’t have to be a taxonomy page. This is also valid for any other section under /contents. We don’t have to create an index page for each section but we can create one if we want to overwrite defaults and add something special for that section.

This post will be very short and precise. In Jekyll, we had to create an .xml file using liquid templates to tell Jekyll that we want an rss.xml or similarly sitemap.xml. Luckily, Hugo creates these files for us under the hood. You can check them by going to /index.xml and /sitemap.xml pages in your …

Search engine bots or crawlers, use two files to crawl a website more intelligently. These are robots.txt and sitemap.xml. A robots.txt file tells search engine crawlers which pages or files the crawler can or can’t request from the site. This is used mainly to avoid overloading your site with …

Math typesetting, or rendering LaTeX, in Hugo is not a hard task. We have two popular alternatives. First one is mathjax, I was using it before with jekyll. The other popular library for math typesetting is KaTeX. Since it’s faster, this time I’ll go with KaTeX. Implementing these …

Previously, I’ve published a blog post about deploying static content on heroku with basic authentication. You can find the link here. In that post, we hosted the source code on GitLab and configured a CI/CD pipeline to render the static content a.k.a html files and push these files to Heroku. …

Each git commit has a field called Author which consists ‘user.name’ and ‘user.email’. We usually set these variables once, after installing git, with git config --global so that each repo gets the variables from the global definition. We can also set them locally for a …

I’ve been using WSL-2 on Windows for over a year. It’s very useful because some Python packages are just a headache to install on Windows. Also, docker. It’s just better on Linux. Yet, WSL-2 can also be problematic. I remember trying a dual-boot setup when things just went way too …
