Headless CMS for Hugo

Hygraph is the ideal Headless CMS for Hugo websites and applications. Read further to learn how our API-first CMS allows you to add components to your Hugo apps in minutes and enable your website's content to be managed from a powerful CMS instead of just markdown files.

Step #1 - Configure the GetRemote Function

To integrate a headless CMS with a Hugo website or application, start by configuring the GetRemote function to fetch data from Hygraph's GraphQL API and store this as a variable.

{{ $options := dict
"method" "POST"
"headers" (dict "Content-Type" "application/graphql")
"body" `{
blogPosts {
image {

Step #2 - Work with data within Hugo templates

Fetching data from Hygraph and using it in Hugo templates is a straightforward process. Hygraph's GraphQL API allows for efficient data retrieval, and Hugo's template system is designed for easy integration.

By combining the two, you can seamlessly incorporate dynamic content from Hygraph into your Hugo website, enabling you to create dynamic and engaging web experiences with minimal complexity.

{{ with resources.GetRemote "{{YOUR_HYGRAPH_URL}}" $options }}
{{ with .Content }}
{{ with transform.Unmarshal . }}
{{ with .data.blogPosts }}
{{ range . }}
<a href={{ .slug }}>
<img src={{ .image.url }}
<h3>{{ .title }}</h3>
<p>{{ .description }}</p>
{{ end }}
{{ end }}
