yoki-go (よき-go)

A clean, minimal, netlify ready theme for Hugo, derived from hucore.

This is a work in progress. Netlify integration is one of my main goals for this theme. The master branch (currently locked to #0ed1718) is deployed here.

Visually, the theme is nearly identical to hucore with a few layout and font changes. I've derived from hucore (as opposed to forking it) because it is a nice clean theme that serves my purpose well: I wanted a starting point for my experimentations with Hugo and continious deployments on Netlify. This theme is a small part of a larger project I'm working on that incorporates Hugo and the Netlify API. There are no plans for any significant deviations from hucore/Hemingway in terms of style.


Navigate to the root of your Hugo site and add yoki-go as a submodule into the themes folder:

$ git submodule add themes/yoki-go

The exampleSite folder contains example content used in the live preview, as well as the config.toml file. Copy the config.toml file to the root of your hugo site, overwriting the existing one if necessary. You may copy the example content from the content folder if you wish.


Configuration is straightforward. Edit the config.toml file to suit your requirements.

The blogroot setting points to the folder where your blog posts are. A paginated list of all posts in this folder will be shown on the homepage, underneath all content in the page. If you do not wish to display any posts on the homepage, simply comment the line, or delete it.

If you wish to add top level pages to your site (work/about/contact etc), place them in the root folder, and add the following to their front matter:

type: "singlepage"
layout: "default"

Hugo will then use the template in layouts/singlepage/default.html to process these pages. You can change the values for type and layout. Hugo looks for a template in layouts/<type>/<layout>.html.


  • Netlify integration via a python script: this should be as simple as invoking the script, inputting your credentials, git repo and deploying
  • Template variables in css, css optimization and simplification to allow easier customization
  • CSS performance optimization
