GDPR in mind
The GDPR has many rules for third party assets, so if you don't want to think about GDPR complaints you can disable every third party asset that is integrated.
Some websites using webfonts from third party sites like google. This theme brings FontAwesome and Roboto(-Slab) directly with it, without having to integrate them via third party sites.
Multilingual support for month names and fixed strings
Due to the currently unavailable feature for multilingual dates in
from Go. It is possible to create a
month.yaml in the data folder of your
Hugo site root directory. There is also an example file in
cat > month.yaml << EOF 1: "Jan" 2: "Feb" 3: "Mar" 4: "Apr" 5: "May" 6: "Jun" 7: "Jul" 8: "Aug" 9: "Sep" 10: "Oct" 11: "Nov" 12: "Dec" EOF
There are some fixed strings in the html files that normally uses only the set
language. But if you create a folder
i18n/ in the root directory of your
hugo site and copy the
en.yaml that comes with the theme you can edit the
fixed strings to your liking. Don't forget to also set
defaultContentLanguage = "en" to the new language.
mkdir i18n cd i18n cp ../themes/hugo-vitae/i18n/en.yaml en.yaml # Edit the new language file
FontAwesome for social icons
FontAwesome is mainly used for the icons of the social navbar in the top right
corner of the theme. In the config of your Hugo website there is a param
icon for the
params.social section. I could look like this:
[[params.social]] name = "Github" icon = "fab fa-github" url = "https://github.com/dataCobra/hugo-vitae"
On the FontAwesome website, you can look up every
free icon and also the information you need to put into this
