Getting started New

From zero to a brand new docs site

Before you begin with this guide, make sure that you've installed Hugo version 0.60.0 or greater.

Initial setup

To get started with Tract, first create a new Hugo project. In this guide, the project will be called my-docs.

hugo new site my-docs && cd my-docs

Now initialize Git and clone the Tract theme repository as a submodule:

git init
git submodule add themes/tract

Now download an example Hugo config file:

curl -O

Run the site locally

With the initial theme and configuration in place, you can start the Hugo server locally:

hugo server

Now navigate to http://localhost:1313 in your browser to see the new site.

Now that you've completed the initial setup, you can move on to adding content.
