I’m using Hugo + Github Pages as my personal blog platform. A Hugo site yields the following directory structure, where the
public/ subdirectory stores the generated static pages:
├── archetypes/ ├── config.toml ├── content/ ├── data/ ├── layouts/ ├── public/ ├── resources/ ├── static/ └── themes/
How do I publish the
public/ subdirectory, instead of the root directory, to Github Pages?
We need two branches to achieve this. Assuming your default publishing source is the
gh-pages branch (check out this link for more information about default publishing source), we commit the entire Hugo site to the
master branch, and commit only the
public/ subdirectory to the
gh-pages branch. Here are the steps:
masterbranch. You need first make sure it isn’t ignored by Git.
git subtree push --prefix public origin gh-pages.
This should do the trick.
