Halcyon

Basic Setup for a new Grav site

The simplest way to install Halcyon theme for Grav is to download and install the Halcyon Skeleton package:

  1. Download Halcyon Skeleton
  2. Simply unzip the package into your web root folder.
  3. Point your browser at the folder, job done!

TIP: Check out the general Grav installation instructions for more details on this process.


Existing Grav site

It is possible to install just the theme, but page content will need to reference the Halcyon theme's supported templates. It is strongly advised to at least install the Halcyon Skeleton package to see the theme's capabilities in action.

To install just the theme:

$ bin/gpm install halcyon

Configuration

Configuration of Halcyon theme consist of two parts:

  • configuration file (from skeleton): "user/config/site.yaml"
  • header variables (inside markdown files)

In configuration file you can set basic values for header, footer and general. In markdown files, you can manage page content and overall look of the separate section. For example, below is a portfolio.md header section:

portfolio:
  - title: "Creative Minds"
    img: portfolio-01.jpg
    img_text: View More
    img_url: "#"
    content: "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Nunc ultricies nulla non metus pulvinar imperdiet. Praesent non adipiscing libero."

In above example you can specify title, image, roll over text, url and content for each separate portfolio element.

Rest of the sections is made in similar approach. Remember to preserve original idenation to avoid issues.
