using heroku buildpack hugo

This is a Heroku buildpack for sites powered by Hugo. It uses the latest stable version of Hugo.


Create a Heroku application using this buildpack:

$ heroku create --buildpack

or configure your existent application:

$ heroku config:add BUILDPACK_URL=""

Then simply git push to heroku and open your application!

$ git push heroku master
$ heroku open

Using themes

This buildpack provides a simple api to use custom themes, just add a .hugotheme file in the root of your application with the url of your theme.


To fetch the great hyde theme:

[Here]() is an example application, and [here]() is the code.

Alternative method

If you don’t like the idea of a .hugotheme file, you can simply manage your themes with git submodules. Heroku will take care to fetch all the submodules in your project.

Important notes

Don’t forget to configure your hugo baseurl with the url of your application.
