If you’d like to preview what your Quartz site looks like before deploying it to the internet, here’s exactly how to do that!

Note that both of these steps need to be completed.

Install hugo-obsidian

This step will generate the list of backlinks for Hugo to parse. Ensure you have Go (>= 1.16) installed.

# Install and link `hugo-obsidian` locally
$ go install github.com/jackyzha0/hugo-obsidian@latest

# Navigate to your local Quartz folder
$ cd <location-of-your-local-quartz>

# Scrape all links in your Quartz folder and generate info for Quartz
$ hugo-obsidian -input=content -output=assets/indices -index -root=.

If you are running into an error saying that command not found: hugo-obsidian, make sure you set your GOPATH correctly! This will allow your terminal to correctly recognize hugo-obsidian as an executable.

Afterwards, start the Hugo server as shown above and your local backlinks and interactive graph should be populated!
