I just repaved my home computer and though I would write up instructions for myself on how to setup hugo (which i use to publish this blog) on WSL2.
I first investigated apt-get for Ubuntu, but the version there seems old (0.40.1)…
I want a specific version (0.56.2) which is the one i use at netlify, which i use for publishing and hosting.
Insteady i opt to install via
deb package, so i go to check out the hugo github releases for my specific version.
I found hugo_0.56.2_Linux-64bit.deb, which i download.
I install the package
sudo dpkg -i hugo*.deb
And we’re ready to run
hugo serve --config config.toml,config.dev.toml
