Lanyon includes some customizable options, typically applied via classes on the
To populate the sidebar, see the Ghost documentation for navigation.
Lanyon ships with eight optional themes based on the base16 color scheme. Apply a theme to change the color scheme (mostly applies to sidebar and links).
There are eight themes available at this time.
To use a theme, add any one of the available theme classes to the
<body> element in the
default.hbs layout, like so:
<body class="theme-base-08"> ... </body>
To create your own theme, look to the Themes section of lanyon.css. Copy any existing theme (they're only a few lines of CSS), rename it, and change the provided colors.
Reverse the page orientation with a single class.
<body class="layout-reverse"> ... </body>
Sidebar overlay instead of push
Make the sidebar overlap the viewport content with a single class:
<body class="sidebar-overlay"> ... </body>
This will keep the content stationary and slide in the sidebar over the side content. It also adds a
box-shadow based outline to the toggle for contrast against backgrounds, as well as a
box-shadow on the sidebar for depth.
It's also available for a reversed layout when you add both classes:
<body class="layout-reverse sidebar-overlay"> ... </body>
Sidebar open on page load
Show an open sidebar on page load by modifying the
<input> to add the
checked boolean attribute:
<input type="checkbox" class="sidebar-checkbox" id="sidebar-checkbox" checked>
