Table of Contents


The main features of this theme include:

  • Page load speed optimizations (scores 99/100 on PageSpeed)
  • Syntax highlighting with chroma
  • Dark mode
  • No JavaScript
  • Multiple categories as navigation tabs
  • Tags and categories have their own pages
  • Footer with variable social links and RSS
  • Google analytics option
  • Table of contents
  • Custom date/time format

Getting Started

If you have not already created a blog, I recommend you check out my getting started guide for a comprehensive overview. Otherwise, just download it or clone it into your themes/ directory:

$ cd themes && git clone

Then reference it in your config:

theme = "temple"

Or when building the site, pass it in to the CLI:

$ hugo -t temple


Your config file will hold all your options:

baseURL = ""
title = "Your Blog Title"
theme = "temple"
# If not set, it will not appear. Otherwise it will show below your footer links
copyright = "(c) 2008 - 2014"

# Enables Chroma-based syntax highlighting with theme "friendly"
# See for other theme options
pygmentsStyle = "friendly"
# If true, Chroma will highlight GitHub-style code fences in addition to
# highlight shortcodes
pygmentsCodeFences = true

  # Enables the topmenu, which pulls from categories
  topmenu = "categories"

  # Enables custom date format (optional, the default is MM-DD-YYYY)
  # For reference to date and time templating, see:
  dateformatpretty = "2006-01-02"

  # Enables dark mode
  # Note that your syntax highlighting should be changed accordingly. If you
  # choose a syntax-highlighting with a white-background it won't appear
  # correctly. See
  darkmode = true

  # Enable table of contents, this can be overridden by page level parameter `toc`.
  toc = true

  # Location of favicon.ico in the "static/" directory
  favicon_location = "favicon.ico" # This assumes it's in static/favicon.ico

# Builds a list page for each category given
  tag = "tags"
  category = "categories"

  name = "Aos Dabbagh"
  github = "aos"
  email = ""
  # Note: GA Javascript snippet is not included if "gaid" is left blank
  gaid = "Your Google Analytics ID"
  twitter = "twitterID"
  medium = "mediumUsername"

There is also a fixed About page on the navbar. Create it using:

$ hugo new about
