Adam & Eve

I migrated my wiki from Dokuwiki to Hugo and created a new theme to reconcile both: Adam & Eve was born.

This theme is special: it comes with its more simple formal dress.

Why ? Because it is:

  • simple
  • clean
  • responsive

I was enormously inspired by Note Plugin for notes. And Dokuwiki for external and internal links.


They use Adam & Eve:


This is a single page from the wiki, showing:

  • a simple menu to go to the homepage
  • a table of contents
  • internal shortcode (the green link)
  • note shortcode (the 4 models)
  • nolink shortcode (the red link)
  • remote shortcode (the link with a globe before)

A single page from the Wiki


In your Hugo root folder, do something like:

mkdir themes
cd themes
git clone

Check Hugo Installation Guide for more information.


It's hardly recommended to check the config.toml.example file. Especially to configure the table of content via [markup] section, the name of each menu, enable Emoji, etc.

Table of content

To configure the table of content, edit your config.toml file and add something like:

    endLevel = 6
    ordered = false
    startLevel = 1

It means you start the Table of Content from h1 to h6. You can find more info about table of content configuration on official Hugo documentation.

Use git commit date as last modification date

If you keep an history of your Hugo website, you can use git commit date as last modification date of each page (as explained in Hugo documentation about EnableGitInfo).

To enable this option, edit your config.toml file to add:

EnableGitInfo = true

This will enable this explained option.

Choose code colorization theme

Regarding list of available themes for Chroma plugin, you can customize your preferred code colorization theme using this line in your config.toml file:

pygmentsstyle = 'monokai'

Getting Started

The config file

You can either copy config.toml.example from this repository to your Hugo root directory (and rename it config.toml). Or copy those included in exampleSite directory.

Just adapt the content to your needs.

The files files are used to display content of a specific category. A category is a directory you add in content directory.

Check exampleSite directory content for some examples.

Tip: If you need to make a link to a category called design, to go to its file, you need to create an empty file and make a link like that:

[My category]({{< relref "mycategory/" >}})

Special features

Specific links

In order to have a similar behaviour to Dokuwiki, I created 3 types of links:

  • Remote link: display a little globe at the left. Permit to reader immediately understand that it's a remote link
  • Internal link: between page that are in your wiki
  • Word without link: sometimes you planned to make a link on a word. To not forget, I created a specific nolink word to make a specific display

Let's have some example.

For remote links:

{{< remote "Wiki" "" >}}

With remote shortcode, you have many other possibilities by playing with parameters:

{{< remote "Panda" "https://best.panda.domain.tld" "What a panda looks like" >}}

which add a title to your link (when user keep cursor on it).

{{< remote "" >}}

which display the link at it is. But with the globe before ;)

For internal links:

{{< internal "Magic potion" "section/" >}}

And for nolink word:

{{< nolink "How to create a flower bread" "page/I/want/to/create/" >}}

Tip: Check exampleSite/content/ file to have some examples.


Display a sidebar with a specific background color to show readers something important.

We have 4 sidebar models:

  • warning (red)
  • important (yellow)
  • tip (green)
  • normal (blue)


{{% note warning %}}
Pay attention to read this **entire page** before applying what you read!
{{% /note %}}

Homepage menu

By default a menu is displayed on Homepage. You can disable it. Use nohomebar in config.toml like this:

    nohomebar = true

Homepage posts list

By default a list of post from post directory is shown on Homepage. You can disable it. Use NoHomepagePostList in config.toml like this:

    NoHomepagePostList = true
