Hi Ayush,

If you want to work with the generated site, it would probably be easier to run docpad and then take the files it has generated, instead of doing this manually. Also the first step should be making sure you are able to get the current site up and running locally, and understanding the various parts. 

The Hugo based site, or whichever static site generator is used, will still need to convert Markdown files and render them as HTML. So moving over already generated HTML files may not provide you with the correct workflow.
