The simplest way to install is to clone the entire repository:

$ cd hexo
$ git clone themes/next

Or you can see detailed installation instructions if you want any other variant.


In NexT config now you can find dependencies on each module which was moved to external repositories which can be found by main organization link.

For example, if you want to enable pjax on your site, go to NexT config and see:

# Easily enable fast Ajax navigation on your website.
# Dependencies:
pjax: false

Then turn on pjax and go to «Dependencies» link with installation instructions of this module.

Configure CDN

If you use CDN for any plugins, you need to replace your CDN link.

For example, if you want to use mediumzoom and you configured a CDN link, go to NexT config and see:

  # ...
  # Some contents...
  # ...
  mediumzoom: # Set or update mediumzoom CDN URL.

Instead of defining main organization link for updates.


You can update to latest master branch by the following command:

$ cd themes/next
$ git pull

And if you see any error message during update (something like «Commit your changes or stash them before you can merge»), recommended to learn Hexo data files feature.
However, you can bypass update errors by using the Commit, Stash or Reset commands for local changes. See here how to do it.

If you want to update from v5.1.x to the latest version, read this.
