If you're using Hexo 5.0 or later, the simplest way to install is through npm:

$ cd hexo-site
$ npm install hexo-theme-next

Or you can clone the entire repository:

$ cd hexo-site
$ git clone themes/next

See detailed installation instructions if you want any other variant.

After the installation, open Hexo config file and set theme variable to next.

theme: next


It is not recommended to directly modify any files in the NexT theme. Because this may cause errors (e.g. merge conflicts), and the modified files may be discarded when upgrading the theme.

At present, NexT encourages users to use the Alternate Theme Config to configure NexT. And it's easy to customize the layout or style of NexT using Custom Files.


Plugins extend and expand the functionality of NexT. There are two types of plugins: core plugins and third-party plugins. The core plugins are required by the basic functions of NexT. Third-party plugins provide a large number of optional features.

Configuring these plugins is very easy. For example, if you want to enable pjax on your site, just set pjax to true in NexT config file:

# Easily enable fast Ajax navigation on your website.
# For more information:
pjax: true

Configure CDN

Third-party plugins are loaded from CDNJS CDN by default. We also provide other optional CDNs, including the famous UNPKG and jsDelivr.

For example, if you want to use unpkg instead of cdnjs as the default CDN provider, you need to edit the following settings in NexT config file:

  # ...
  # Some contents...
  # ...
  plugins: unpkg


A new version of NexT will be released every month. Please read the release notes before updating the theme. You can update NexT by the following command.

Install the latest version through npm:

$ cd hexo-site
$ npm install hexo-theme-next@latest

Or update to the latest master branch:

$ cd themes/next
$ git pull

If you want to update from v5.x / v7.x to the latest version, read this.
