  • System native fonts
  • Home subtitles typewriter effect
  • A new list of home posts, compatible with the latest version of Hugo
  • Replace all theme icons with Font Awesome
  • A lot of style detail adjustments, including color, font size, margins, code preview style
  • More readable dark mode
  • Some beautiful CSS animations
  • Easy-to-use and self-expanding article catalog, while adapting to the mobile side
  • More suitable as a blog theme, the gallery function has been removed, but the image is lazy loaded to improve performance
  • Extended markdown syntax for Font Awesome icons
  • Math formula support by Katex

In short, if you prefer the design language and freedom of the LoveIt theme, if you want to use the extended Font Awesome icons conveniently, if you want to embed math formulas, flowcharts, music or Bilibili videos in your posts, the LoveIt theme may be more suitable for you.

I hope you will LoveIt ❤️!

Getting Started

Clone this repository to your hugo theme directory.

  cd themes
  git clone https://github.com/dillonzq/LoveIt.git

Or, make this repository a submodule of your site directory.

  git submodule add https://github.com/dillonzq/LoveIt.git themes/LoveIt

Next, open config.toml in the base of the Hugo site and ensure the theme option is set to KeepIt:

  theme = "LoveIt"

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.

Site Configuration

Take a look in the exampleSite folder.

This directory contains an example config file and the content for the demo for en and zh languages. It serves as an example setup for your website.

Copy the config.toml to the root directory of your website. Overwrite the existing config file if necessary.

Content Suggestions

A few suggestions to help you get a good looking site quickly:

  • Keep blog posts in the content/posts directory, for example: content/posts/my-first-post.md
  • Keep static pages in the content directory, for example: content/about.md
  • Keep media like images in the static directory, for example: static/images/2019/9/screenshot.png

Customizing styles for your website

If you want to change some styling to fit your own website needs, you can edit them:

  • assets/css/_varibales.scss: You can override the variables in _variables.scss to customize the style
  • assets/css/_custom.scss: You can put your custom css in this file

Favicons, Browserconfig, Manifest

It is recommended to put your own favicons

  • apple-touch-icon.png (180x180)
  • favicon-32x32.png (32x32)
  • favicon-16x16.png (16x16)
  • mstile-150x150.png (150x150)
  • android-chrome-192x192.png (192x192)
  • android-chrome-512x512.png (512x512)

into /static. They’re easily created via https://realfavicongenerator.net/.

Customize browserconfig.xml and site.webmanifest to set theme-color and background-color.

Tips

Set production environment when generating site

Because some features are only in production mode, so you need to add a production environment variables when generating your site.

  HUGO_ENV=production hugo --gc --minify

How to toggle dark-light mode

  • You can click the circle icon to toggle dark-light mode. In the desktop version the circle icon is to the right and in the mobile version is positioned to the left, close to the site title.
  • If you want to make your own theme toggle-able element, you can create an element with a class .theme-switch. See here

Home Post model

If you want to show posts on index instead of a personal profile, just open config.toml, add the following line:

  [params]
    home_mode = "post"

Add logo and cover for SEO

Add a logo image (127x40) and a cover image (800x600) in the static directory.
