It has been adapted to work with Jekyll 3.x and to be used as a starting point for progressive web applications.
Hyde includes some customizable options, typically applied via classes on the
Create a list of nav links in the sidebar by assigning each Jekyll page the correct layout in the page's front-matter.
--- layout: page title: About ---
Why require a specific layout? Jekyll will return all pages, including the
atom.xml, and with an alphabetical sort order. To ensure the first link is Home, we exclude the
index.html page from this list by specifying the
Sticky sidebar content
By default Hyde ships with a sidebar that affixes it's content to the bottom of the sidebar. You can optionally disable this by removing the
.sidebar-sticky class from the sidebar's
.container. Sidebar content will then normally flow from top to bottom.
<!-- Default sidebar --> <div class="sidebar"> <div class="container sidebar-sticky"> ... </div> </div> <!-- Modified sidebar --> <div class="sidebar"> <div class="container"> ... </div> </div>
Hyde ships with eight optional themes based on the base16 color scheme. Apply a theme to change the color scheme (mostly applies to sidebar and links).
There are eight themes available at this time.
To use a theme, add anyone of the available theme classes to the
<body> element in the
default.html layout, like so:
<body class="theme-base-08"> ... </body>
To create your own theme, look to the Themes section of included CSS file. Copy any existing theme (they're only a few lines of CSS), rename it, and change the provided colors.
Hyde's page orientation can be reversed with a single class.
<body class="layout-reverse"> ... </body>
