Hi Nice πŸ˜„ this is easy CI/CD Intergration have seen. But do we have a CMS for Hugo? Instead of making changes from VS Code ?

Hugo is a cms. All posts are done via static files. That’s the entire point, to avoid a data store to drive the pages. Rather we create and post like we create code.

So Hugo is for coders, not for end users who don't know to code.
