About the theme

Hi I'm Matt Button, the creator of the Hugo Silhoutte theme.

I've been a fan of Hugo for many years.

Back in 2016, inspired by the theme on Troy Hunt's blog, I hacked together a custom Hugo theme for my personal blog using Bootstrap 3.

In 2018 I rebuilt the theme using Bootstrap 4.1, and decided to share it with the Hugo community under the name "Silhouette Hugo".

The silhouette image is taken from this photo by Karl Magnuson.


Create a new Hugo site by typing

  $ hugo new site <SITENAME>

Then clone this repository:

  $ cd <SITENAME>/themes
  $ git clone

Add the theme to your site's config file:

  $ cd ..
  $ echo 'theme = "silhouette-hugo"' >> config.toml

Now take a look at the exampleSite folder and you're ready to go!
