First install Termux

Build from source

Open the Termux terminal on your Android device and copy-and-paste the commands listed below and hit ENTER:

apt update;\
apt install -y git golang make;\
export GOPATH=$HOME/go;\
export PATH=$PATH:$GOPATH/bin;\
go get -d github.com/spf13/hugo;\
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/spf13/hugo;\
make install;\
hugo server -s docs;

Use a prebuilt release binary

apt update;\
apt install curl;\
curl -L https://github.com/spf13/hugo/releases/download/v0.20/hugo_0.20_Linux_ARM.tar.gz | tar zxf -
