Mediumish Theme

Installation

Inside the folder of your Hugo site run:

$ cd themes
$ git clone https://github.com/lgaida/mediumish-gohugo-theme

Preface

I recommend placing image files for your site config within the static folder of your gohugo website. This allows them to be easily referenced from the config.toml or post.md files. You may structure the files and folders within static however you'd like, with one exception: There must be a file named jumbotron.jpg present under the path static/images as it is referenced in the .css.

Post Example

To create a simple post use the hugo new command as usual. This theme makes use of page bundles / page resource (see https://gohugo.io/content-management/page-bundles/). Place any image next to your post's index.md file and make sure it contains the keyword "cover" inside its name. This image will also be used for twitter and opengraph cards.

hugo new blog/my-first-post/index.md

Creating a new post will create something like this:

---
title: "My first post"
date: 2018-10-01T15:25:19+02:00
publishdate: 2018-10-07T11:17:14+02:00
lastmod: 2018-10-08T18:55:29+02:00
tags: ["post", "interesting"]
type: "post"
comments: false
---
# Lorem ipsum
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aenean semper libero quis dictum dapibus. Nulla egestas vitae augue eu rutrum. Duis ullamcorper dictum ipsum. Interdum et malesuada fames ac ante ipsum primis in faucibus. Suspendisse tortor dui, fermentum non dapibus id, volutpat non odio.

publishdate: is displayed at the top of the single-view
lastmod: is displayed as a hint on the single-view
tags: are used as usual, just add the tags you want to use. They are displayed in the jumbotron on the list-view, and on the bottom of each single-view
comments: true/false to turn on/off disqus-comments

Static Content

I added a customized layout for content of type "static", which means that posts in the folder "static" are displayed as standalone pages. I also disabled the list-layout for this folder.

For example: to create an imprint, simply go with the following command and add your markdown-text.

hugo new static/imprint.md

Configuration

You should at least specify the following default params in your config.toml

baseURL = "http://yourdomain.com"
languageCode = "en-us"
title = "Mediumish"
theme = "mediumish-gohugo-theme"
summaryLength = 25
copyright = "John Doe - All rights reserved"
disqusShortname = "shortDisquis"
googleAnalytics = "UA-1XXXXXXX1-X"

title: is displayed on the postlist and on each post as the title
summaryLength: feel free to play around with this
copyright: is displayed in the footer next to the copyright-logo
disqusShortname: provide your disqusShortname
googleAnalytics: provide your googleAnalytics-Code
