Running Locally

To run the blog server locally:

and then visit http://localhost:8080/ in your browser.

Note that blog.exe caches all content and you must kill it (Ctrl-C on Unix systems) and restart it after editing any files to view changes.


Articles on the blog should have broad interest to the Go community, and are mainly written by Go contributors. We encourage you to share your experiences using Go on your own website, and to share them with the Go community. Hugo is a static site server written in Go that makes it easy to write and share your stories.
