One command is all you need to start a new website.
wget -qO - https://go.habd.as/after-dark | sh

Run the above command in a terminal emulator after installing Hugo to start a new website in 5-10 seconds. Hugo version 0.51 or greater required.


After Dark includes a portable installation script for quick set-up. Please install Hugo 0.51 or greater before running:

Script has been tested on GNU/Linux, BSD (Darwin) and Windows via Cmder.

Warning: Examine scripts downloaded from the Internet before running them.

Here are three methods for downloading and running:

  1. Download and pipe to sh directly:

    wget -qO - https://go.habd.as/after-dark | sh
  2. Download into new file, chmod and execute:

    curl -O https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/after-dark@latest/bin/install && \
    chmod +x install && ./install
  3. From canonical git clone:

    # clone source and change to source directory
    git clone https://git.habd.as/comfusion/after-dark.git && cd "$_"
    
    # use npm cli to get the release hash
    echo "${$(npm run integrity)#*sha512-}"
    
    # run quick install after validating
    ./bin/install

Script should complete in 5-10 seconds resulting in a sample site and help docs:

Your new site will be called flying-toasters. Change it to the name of your project anytime you like. Access site by navigating to https://localhost:1313.

Multi-site Configuration (Advanced)

After Dark enables multi-site management from a single installation. To manage multiple websites use the -c and -d flags to specify the content and destination directories, respectively.

For example, to generate an audio site using the current After Dark installation create an executable script to generate the site:

flying-toasters/bin/gen-audio-site
#!/bin/sh
hugo -c sites/audio -d public/static.domain.example

Where audio contains the content for that site:

├── layouts
├── sites
│   └── audio
│       ├── audiobooks
│       │   ├── gaining-currency.md
│       │   └── the-power-of-now.md
│       └── clips
│           └── war-of-the-worlds.md
├── static

And public contains a folder for each site:

public
└── static.domain.example
    ├── categories
    │   └── index.xml
    ├── audiobooks
    │   └── index.html
    ├── clips
    │   └── index.html
    ├── css
    ├── index.html
    ├── index.xml
    ├── js
    ├── sitemap.xml
    └── tags
        └── index.xml

And create another script to serve the content for editing:

flying-toasters/bin/serve-audio-site
#!/bin/sh
hugo -c sites/audio

Each subdirectory of public then becomes an independent, deployable website and exact copy save for destination content generated.

Tip: For additional flexibility type hugo --help and modify your scripts using the --theme and --config flags.

Multi-site is perfect for maintaining a consistent look-and-feel across multiple domain origins while limiting the need to run the Upgrade Script for each site.
