Minimal is a theme developed by Steve Smith (orderedlist) and belongs the official themes used by the Github Pages automatic page generator. I used the theme for many of my course pages, because it is simple and elegant. SP-Minimal is a port of the theme for use within Hugo. The theme supports single- and multi-page rendering, code highlighting, Disqus comment system and Google Analytics.


Theme Demo


Inside the folder of your Hugo site run:

$ cd themes
$ git clone sp-minimal

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.

Sample Configuration

The following config.toml is used for the demo site mentioned above (multi-page). Please note the line renderType = "multi". Content must be of type post. For details please look at the exampleSite/content/post folder.

baseurl         = ""
theme           = "sp-minimal"
languageCode    = "en-us"
title           = "SP-Minimal"
disqusShortname = ""
paginate        = 5

  title       = "SP-Minimal"
  subtitle    = "Another Minimalist Theme for Hugo"
  copyright   = "Released under the MIT license."
  authorImage = "logo.png"

  #"single" or "multi"
  renderType = "multi"
  #"simple" or "original"
  themeStyle = "simple"

  googleAnalytics = ""

  name = "EM"
  description = "Here is a description of your site."
  pageNotFoundTitle = "404 - Page not found"

For single-page rendering, renderType must be changed to single. Content must be of type onepage. You might just put your markdown file(s) inside exampleSite/content/onepage folder.

  renderType = "single"
  themeStyle = "simple"
