See the official Hugo themes documentation for more info.
This theme expects a relatively standard Hugo blog/personal site layout:
. └── content ├── post | ├── post1.md | └── post2.md ├── license.md // this is used in the sidebar footer link └── other_page.md
hugo --theme=hyde-x to generate your site!
An example of what your site's
config.toml could look like. All theme-specific parameters are under
[params] and standard Hugo parameters are used where possible.

Built-in colour themes
Hyde-X provides 8 built-in colour themes by default, with the option to define more in your own custom CSS.
- If you've added
theme = "hyde-x"to your
config.toml, you don't need to keep using the
- Pages where you specify
menu = "main"in the front matter will be linked in the sidebar just below the
- Use the exact permalink format above to maintain old links if migrating from Jekyll/Octopress.
- Although all of the syntax highlight CSS files under the theme's
static/css/highlightare bundled with the site, only the one you choose will be included in the page and delivered to the browser.
- Change the favicon by providing your own as
static/favicon.pngin your site directory.
- Hugo makes it easy to override theme layout and behaviour, read about it here.
- Pagination is set to 10 items by default, change it by updating
paginate = 10in your
truncate = falsein the
[params]section of your
config.tomlto display full blog post contents in the index page, like the base Hyde theme did.
Changes and enhancements from the original theme
- Category labels and lists.
- Client-side syntax highlighting through highlight.js, sane fallback if disabled or no JS - infinitely more flexible than the standard Hugo highlighting.
- Disqus integration: comment counts listed under blog entry names in post list, comments displayed at the bottom of each post.
- Gravatar image in sidebar.
- Google Analytics integration.
- Sidebar link layout and footer format changes.
- Blog post list now contains only the post description, not the full contents.
- Paginated blog listing.
- FontAwesome social links.
- ...many other small layout tweaks!
Obviously largely a port of the awesome Hyde theme.
