Create your first page
How to build the most simple page in Lume
The page file
After you setup Lume in your project's folder (see installation instructions if you don't have it yet), create the file
index.md and add some content in markdown format, for example:
# Welcome to my website This is my first page using **Lume,** a static site generator for Deno. I hope you enjoy it.
Build and open the page
deno task serve in your terminal. This task does two things:
- Build your site. The
index.mdfile is compiled and exported as
index.htmlin the folder
- Starts a local web server, so you can see the generated site in your browser. Open the url
http://localhost:3000/in your browser to see the page.
The web server also includes live-reloading. If you edit the
index.md file, the browser is reloaded automatically to see the new changes.
Congratulations, you have created your first page with Lume! 🎉
