Creative portfolio theme for hugo

Build Status Join the chat at https://gitter.im/hugo-creative-portfolio-theme/Lobby Buy me a coffee

Creative portfolio is a clean and elegant template mainly made for designers and creatives but can be easily transformed into a generic website.

This Hugo theme was ported from Bootstrapious for training and fun. It has a very nice landing page, a comments system by Disqus, contact forms by Formspree and Google Analytics.

Installation

Go to the directory where you have your Hugo site and run:

mkdir themes
cd themes
git clone https://github.com/kishaningithub/hugo-creative-portfolio-theme.git
rm -rf hugo-creative-portfolio-theme/.git

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.

Configuration

After installing the Creative portfolio theme successfully, i recommend you to take a look at the exampleSite directory. You will find a working Hugo site configured with the Creative portfolio theme that you can use as a starting point for your site.

First, let's take a look at the config.toml. It will be useful to learn how to customize your site. Feel free to play around with the settings.

Style

You can change the color of the theme by modifying the following key.

style = "default"

Available options are: default (pink), blue, green, pink, red, sea, violet.

More style customizations?

Create css/custom.css in your <<base dir>>/static folder and add all your custom styling.

Comments

The optional comments system is powered by Disqus. If you want to enable comments, create an account in Disqus and write down your shortname.

disqusShortname = "your-disqus-short-name"

You can disable the comments system by leaving the disqusShortname empty.

Google Analytics

You can optionally enable Google Analytics. Type your tracking code in the ``.

googleAnalytics = "UA-XXXXX-X"

Leave the googleAnalytics key empty to disable it.

Make the contact form working

Since this page will be static, you can use formspree.io as proxy to send the actual email. Each month, visitors can send you up to one thousand emails without incurring extra charges. Begin the setup by following the steps below:

  1. Enter your email address under 'email' in the config.toml
  2. Upload the generated site to your server
  3. Send a dummy email yourself to confirm your account
  4. Click the confirm link in the email from formspree.io
  5. You're done. Happy mailing!

Nearly finished

In order to see your site in action, run Hugo's built-in local server.

hugo server

Now enter localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
