Hugo Extended for Apps

I’ve an existing Hugo-based Apps deployment. Today I created another (using Ananke) but the deployment fails:

Error: Error building site: TOCSS: failed to transform "ananke/css/main.css" (text/css). Check your Hugo installation; you need the extended version to build SCSS/SASS.
[2022-01-20 18:45:05] Total in 112 ms

I learned (from How to build and deploy a Hugo site to Apps) that there are 2 flavors of Hugo (regular and extended).

I’ve now updated my local copy to extended but I’m unsure how|whether I can specify extended in the Apps deployment spec.

Is there a way to use Hugo Extended with Apps? Should I swap themese and/or use a container-based deployment instead?

Hello, thanks for using DigitalOcean App Platform. You should be able to use Hugo Extended by setting HUGO_EXTENDED build environment variable to 1 in your application. Hope this helps.
