Minimalist

Minimalist is a responsive theme with a focus on blogging based on the Minimalistic Ghost theme made by Raphael Riegger.

Noteworthy features of this Hugo theme are the integration of a comment-system powered by Disqus, easy localization (l10n), support for RSS feeds, syntax highlighting for source code and sharing options in the blog posts.

Preview & Installation

Preview

The theme ships with an exampleSite folder that acts as a demo setup. cd into this folder an start the Hugo:

git clone https://github.com/digitalcraftsman/hugo-minimalist-theme.git
cd hugo-minimalist-theme/exampleSite
hugo server

Now enter localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.

Installation

If you want to use this theme for an actual website create a new Hugo project and clone the theme:

cd themes
git clone https://github.com/digitalcraftsman/hugo-minimalist-theme.git

Note: make sure to remove themesDir = "../.." from the top of your config file if you copied it from exampleSite/config.toml. Otherwise, Hugo will be unable to find the theme.

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.

The Config File

Take a look inside the exampleSite folder of this theme. You'll find a file called config.toml.

To use it, copy the config.toml to the root folder of your Hugo site. Play around with the settings to tweak your site as you like.

Localization (l10n)

Localization allows you to easily translate all strings in our website. Within exampleSite/data you'll find a file called l10n.toml. If you're not blogging in English replace all strings with their equivalents of your preferred language.
