Classless for Hugo

This Hugo theme features the basic Classless templates for your posts and list of posts. One of the themes supported on Classless may be chosen from your site's config.toml, along with the hash of the commit which you want to reference. That is needed because the provider,, needs that to serve cached, cdnized versions of the themes hosted on

Supported parameters on config.toml:

theme = "the theme name, choose from"
commit_sha = "if in doubt, go to and copy the 7 characters from the line that says: 'Latest commit xxxxxxx'"
theme_url = "alternatively, you can just paste a CSS URL here to be included"
description = "a description of your site, will be used on `body > header` and on the <meta> description, when not overriden by pages (in normal posts, it is overriden by the post summary)."
show_summaries = false # if you don't want automatic summaries in list pages

If you don't set a theme and commit_sha (or theme_url), a random Classless theme will be included for you, and a poorly designed widget will appear on your site from which you'll be able to select themes and experiment with them before choosing one to write to your config file.

Partials that should be overwritten:

  • layouts/partials/aside.html: the HTML content of the body > partial Classless element.
  • layouts/partials/footer.html: the HTML content of the body > partial Classless element.

All posts (under content/posts/) support the following extra (optional) parameters:

cover: a URL to an image to be used on the `article > header` and on list pages
hide_date: if you want to hide the date
  - an
  - array
  - of-tags
