Privacy Cactus Theme
Privacy Cactus is a minimalistic theme for bloggers. It's a fork of the original Hugo Cactus Theme (which in itself is based on some other themes with the same name).
So what's different? We care about your visitors privacy, this means:
- All tracking services removed
- Social network sharing links removed (you can just share the URL)
- Disqus comments removed (maybe use email?)
- No third party scripts / fonts / assets
Inside the folder of your Hugo site, run:
$ cd themes $ git clone https://github.com/lucaspiller/hugo-privacy-cactus-theme.git
For more information, please read Hugo's official setup guide.
The config file
To use it, copy the
config.toml file to the root folder of your Hugo site. Feel free to change the strings as you like to customize your website.
Make sure to update the
themesDir property in the config file to point to your site's theme folder, otherwise an error will be thrown indicating the themes folder is unable to be found.
Use the about page to introduce yourself to your visitors. You can customize the content as you like in the
config.toml. Furthermore, you should replace the avatar placeholder with a great image of yourself.
Social link icons
You can add a social link panel in the footer by adding entries to the
social block in the
config.toml. You can choose between two icon fonts:
mono-social to the
iconFont variable. The Mono social icons offer three styles of icons: circle, rounded, or default (empty).
To see your site in action, run Hugo's built-in local server.
$ hugo server
localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
