Create an Article

Creating the md file is easy, but you might want to double check how it will render on the website. To do so, we recommend you to install Hugo (using Chocolatey it’s just a choco install hugo) and test what you create.

But when you have installed hugo, forked the dsccommunity.org, and cloned your fork locally, you can generate a post from the template, from the source directory: > C:\src\dsccommunity.org > hugo new blog/your-title-in-lowercase.md.

The command will use the template archetypes\blog.md to generate your draft with correct metadata.

Before you commit, make sure you create a new branch with a distinctive name: git checkout -b my_branch_name.

Then add your file, commit to this branch, and push to your fork:

git add .\content\blog\your-title-in-lowercase.md
git commit -m "adding blog post draft"
git push -u origin my_branch_name
