A super concise theme for Hugo

It's a port of hugo-theme-even, which is a port of hexo-theme-even.

You can visit my blog or Even theme's demo site | 中文說明

Changes in Even-More theme

  • Added Traditional Chinese translation
  • Fixed displaying issue for tag name ".NET" and "C#". See taxonomy.htmlterms.htmlpost/single.html.
  • Added Facebook SDK code. So you can simply copy the code generated by Facebook plugin tools and paste them to wherever you like.
  • Add parameter showFacebookLikeCount to Config.toml. If true, a Facebook Like count will be displayed at the end of each post.
  • Chanegd default syntax highlight colors. The Even theme provides 4 styles, and I changed the code syntax colors of default style based on my preference.

The following sections are original content from the Even theme. I didn't touch them.




$ git clone themes/even

Important: Take a look inside the exampleSite folder of this theme. You'll find a file called config.toml. To use it, copy the config.toml in the root folder of your Hugo site. Feel free to change it.

NOTE: For this theme, you should use post instead of posts, namely hugo new post/

Language Support

Translations are collected from the themes/even/i18n/ folder (built into the theme), as well as translations present in i18n/ at the root of your project. The translations will be merged and take precedence over what is in the theme folder.

To use the translations, just set a correct value for defaultContentLanguage.

defaultContentLanguage = "en"  # en / zh-cn / other...

Can also support any other languages as well. For example, to support german, create a file /i18n/de.yaml in the root folder of your Hugo site. For reference template you can see the en.yaml file.

P.S. In multilingual mode, the language which currently being used to render the website will be used.


In order to customize the favicon you need to place all the following files in the static folder at the root of your site, which will overwrite those files in the themes/even/static/ folder.

  • android-chrome-192x192.png
  • android-chrome-512x512.png
  • apple-touch-icon.png
  • browserconfig.xml
  • favicon.ico
  • favicon-16x16.png
  • favicon-32x32.png
  • manifest.json
  • mstile-150x150.png
  • safari-pinned-tab.svg

A favicon generator can help you generate these files.

Front Matter

You can customize something for a single content in the content's front-matter. The themes/even/archetypes/ shows all available params. Copy this file in the archetypes folder at the root of your project will be useful.


This theme provides center, right, left, music four shortcodes, and support center, right, left class for the built-in figure. See more information from there.

Theme Color

There are five built-in theme colors ( Default | Mint Green | Cobalt Blue | Hot Pink | Dark Violet ), you can config it by changing the $theme-color-config value in /src/css/_variable.scss.


If you changed any file under /src/, you need to rebuild.

cd ./themes/even/src/
npm install
npm run build

Update Theme

cd ./themes/even/
git pull
