Extra Features

Responsive

This theme is designed to look great on both large-screen and small-screen (mobile) devices.

Syntax highlighting

This theme has support for either Hugo's lightning fast Chroma, or both server side and client side highlighting. See the Hugo docs for more.

Chroma - New server side syntax highlighting

To enable Chroma, add the following to your site parameters:

pygmentsCodeFences = true
pygmentsUseClasses = true

Then, you can generate a different style by running:

hugo gen chromastyles --style=trac > static/css/syntax.css

Pygments - Old server side syntax highlighting

To use this feature install Pygments (pip install Pygments) and add the following to your site parameters:

pygmentsStyle = "trac"
pygmentsUseClassic = true

Pygments is mostly compatable with the newer Chroma. It is slower but has some additional theme options. I recommend Chroma over Pygments. Pygments will use syntax.css for highlighting, unless you also set the config pygmentsUseClasses = false which will generate the style code directly in the HTML file.

Highlight.js - Client side syntax highlighting

[Params]
    useHLJS = true

Client side highlighting does not require pygments to be installed. This will use highlight.min.css instead of syntax.css for highlighting (effectively disabling Chroma). Highlight.js has a wider range of support for languages and themes, and an alternative highlighting engine.

Disqus support

To use this feature, uncomment and fill out the disqusShortname parameter in config.toml.

Staticman support

Add staticman configuration section in config.toml or config.yaml

Sample config.yaml configuration

  staticman:
    api: https://api.staticman.net/v2/entry/<USERNAME>/<REPOSITORY-BLOGNAME>/master/comments
    pulls: https://github.com/<USERNAME>/<REPOSITORY-BLOGNAME>/pulls
    recaptcha:
      sitekey: "6LeGeTgUAAAAAAqVrfTwox1kJQFdWl-mLzKasV0v"
      secret: "hsGjWtWHR4HK4pT7cUsWTArJdZDxxE2pkdg/ArwCguqYQrhuubjj3RS9C5qa8xu4cx/Y9EwHwAMEeXPCZbLR9eW1K9LshissvNcYFfC/b8KKb4deH4V1+oqJEk/JcoK6jp6Rr2nZV4rjDP9M7nunC3WR5UGwMIYb8kKhur9pAic="

You must also configure the staticman.yml in you blog website.

comments:
  allowedFields: ["name", "email", "website", "comment"]
  branch            : "master"
  commitMessage     : "New comment in {options.slug}"
  path: "data/comments/{options.slug}"
  filename          : "comment-{@timestamp}"
  format            : "yaml"
  moderation        : true
  requiredFields    : ['name', 'email', 'comment']
  transforms:
    email           : md5
  generatedFields:
    date:
      type          : "date"
      options:
        format      : "iso8601"
  reCaptcha:
    enabled: true
    siteKey: "6LeGeTgUAAAAAAqVrfTwox1kJQFdWl-mLzKasV0v"
    secret: "hsGjWtWHR4HK4pT7cUsWTArJdZDxxE2pkdg/ArwCguqYQrhuubjj3RS9C5qa8xu4cx/Y9EwHwAMEeXPCZbLR9eW1K9LshissvNcYFfC/b8KKb4deH4V1+oqJEk/JcoK6jp6Rr2nZV4rjDP9M7nunC3WR5UGwMIYb8kKhur9pAic="

Google Analytics

To add Google Analytics, simply sign up to Google Analytics to obtain your Google Tracking ID, and add this tracking ID to the googleAnalytics parameter in config.toml.

Commit SHA on the footer

If the source of your site is in a Git repo, the SHA corresponding to the commit the site is built from can be shown on the footer. To do so, two environment variables have to be set (GIT_COMMIT_SHA and GIT_COMMIT_SHA_SHORT) and parameter commit has to be defined in the config file:

[Params]
  commit = "https://github.com/<username>/<siterepo>/tree/"

This can be achieved by running the next command prior to calling Hugo:

  GIT_COMMIT_SHA=`git rev-parse --verify HEAD` GIT_COMMIT_SHA_SHORT=`git rev-parse --short HEAD`

See at xor-gate/xor-gate.org an example of how to add it to a continuous integration system.

Extra shortcodes

There are two extra shortcodes provided (along with the customized figure shortcode):

Details

This simply adds the html5 detail attribute, supported on all modern browsers. Use it like this:

{{% details "This is the details title (click to expand)" %}}
This is the content (hidden until clicked).
{{% /details %}}

Split

This adds a two column side-by-side environment (will turn into 1 col for narrow devices):

{{< columns >}}
This is column 1.
{{< column >}}
This is column 2.
{{< endcolumn >}}
