Apache Hadoop site


The site is generated with Hugo.

To generate a site you need only one binary. Follow the install guide from the Hugo site. (Typically all the package managers contain dedicated packages, but as the Hugo is written in go it's also possible to download the single binary from the release page).

After the installation you can generate the site with:


And the site will be generated to the content sub directory.

This repository contains both the source and the rendered version of the site. Always execute a hugo before the commit, to refresh the content folder.

To improve/develop the site, you can use

hugo server

which starts a standalone auto-refreshed web server.


To create a new release, create a file in src/release directory. The file name should be <version>.mdwhere version is the release version.

Example: src/release/2.7.3.md
