Step 1

Create your first page

The page file

Create the file index.md and add some content in markdown format, for example:

# Welcome to my website

This if my first page using **Lume,**
a static site generator for Deno.

I hope you enjoy it.

Build and open the page

Run lume --serve in your terminal. This command does two things:

  • Build your site. This means that the index.md file is compiled and exported as index.html in the folder _site.
  • The argument --serve 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 includes also a live-reload. 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! 🎉
