Just Markdown

Write all content with Markdown. Hydejack gives you additional CSS classes to stylize your content, without losing compatibility with other Jekyll themes.

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.querySelector("hy-push-state").addEventListener("hy-push-state-load", () => {
  const supportsCodeHighlights = true; //!!
});

Code blocks can have a filename and a caption.

Beautiful Math
