A Free Blogging Theme

Hydejack started out as a free blogging theme for Jekyll — and continues to be so.

An Impressive Portfolio

A portfolio that's guaranteed to be impressive — no matter what you put into it.

A Printable Resume

Get a resume that's consistent across the board — whether it's on the web, mobile, print, or PDF.

Just Markup

Hydejack boasts a plethora of modern JavaScript, but make no mistake: It's still a plain old web page at its core. It works without JavaScript, and you can even view it in a text-based browser like w3m:

Syntax Highlighting

Hydejack features syntax highlighting, powered by Rouge.

document.getElementsByTagName("hy-push-state")[0].addEventListener("hy-push-state-load", function() {
  // <your init code>
});

Beautiful Math

They say math is beautiful — and with Hydejack's math support it's also guaranteed to look beautiful.

Build an Audience

The PRO version has built-in support for customizable Tinyletter newsletter subscription boxes.

If you are using a different service like MailChimp, you can build a custom newsletter subscription box using Custom Forms.

A Personal Site That Belongs to You

Hydejack is 100% built on Open Source software, and is Open Source itself, save for parts of the PRO version. The PRO version is a one-time payment that gives you the right to use it forever.

[^1]: You MAY open an issue on GitHub, but no response and/or fix is guaranteed. You understand that using Jekyll requires technical know-how and is not comparable to Wordpress in terms of ease of use. Please use the free version to confirm that Hydejack works for you. For details, see the PRO license.

[^2]: Actual page load speed depends on your hosting provider, resolution of embedded images and usage of 3rd party plugins.

*[FLIP]: First-Last-Invert-Play. A coding technique to achieve performant page transition animations.
