This theme demostrates how to bootstrap a new Hexo theme.
It is based on the Hexo Theme Unit Test and shows the bare minimum needed to start building a new theme.
Hexo Theme Unit Test
This is a dummy Hexo site for theme unit test. You should test your theme before release.
This test doesn't contain the default theme. You have to install the theme you want to test before starting.
Clone this repository
$ git clone https://github.com/hexojs/hexo-theme-unit-test.git
Install your own theme and modify
Run server and start testing. Make sure all styles are displayed properly.
Once test is done, you can submit your theme!
Use the proper DOCTYPE. If you don't know which doctype you should use,
<!DOCTYPE html>is recommended.
Proper titles for different pages
<link rel="alternate" href="path/of/rss" type="application/atom+xml">
<link rel="icon" href="path/of/favicon">
