Wercker step to validate Hugo themes

1 minutes

So last week, I created a material design theme for Hugo , a static site generator that I’m quite fond of](/tags/hugo/).

As I discovered Wercker , an awesome CI tool, I went looking for a way to automatically validate themes.

There wasn’t any, so I simply wrote a build step for Wercker . The build step validates a Hugo theme using an example site . It also checks if you included some files required for a future Hugo themes site.

The code for the build step is available at and an example wercker.yml configuration is included below.
