All Themes Hugo
See a complete listing of all of these themes along with screenshots and demos at themes.gohugo.io.
Every theme in this list will automatically be added to the theme site.
Installing all themes
If you would like to install all of the available Hugo themes, simply clone the entire repository from within your working directory with this command:
git clone --depth 1 --recursive https://github.com/spf13/hugoThemes.git themes
Installing a single theme
mkdir themes cd themes git clone URL_TO_THEME
Adding a theme to the list
- Create your theme using
hugo new theme THEMENAME;
- Test your theme against https://github.com/spf13/HugoBasicExample;
- Add a
theme.tomlfile to the root of the theme;
- Add a
README.mdto the root of the theme;
- Open up a new Issue with a link to the theme's repository on GitHub.
If your theme doesn't fit into the
Hugo Basic Example site, we encourage theme authors to supply a self-contained Hugo site in
/exampleSite. NOTE: The folder name here is important, as this folder will be picked up and used by the script that generates the Hugo Theme Site. See Artist theme's exampleSite for a good example. And please make the site's content as neutral as possible.
Each theme needs:
- to be added to the hugoThemes repo;
- the right fields in
- the right images;
- a good README.
The following fields are required:
name = "Hyde" license = "MIT" licenselink = "https://github.com/spf13/hyde/blob/master/LICENSE.md" description = "An elegant open source and mobile first theme" homepage = "http://siteforthistheme.com/" tags = ["blog", "company"] features = ["blog", ] min_version = 0.13 [author] name = "spf13" homepage = "http://spf13.com/" # If porting an existing theme [original] author = "mdo" homepage = "http://hyde.getpoole.com/" repo = "https://www.github.com/mdo/hyde"
This is different from the file created by
hugo new themein the old v0.12. The current Hugo v0.13 does create the same template with the new fields except
min_versionthat was created in 0.14-DEV.
