The simplest way to install is to clone the entire repository:

$ cd hexo
$ git clone themes/next

Or you can see detailed installation instructions if you want any other variant.


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 are loaded from jsDelivr CDN by default, and they 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

If you want to specify the CDN provider for any plugins, you need to set / update the CDN URL.

For example, if you want to set the CDN URL for mediumzoom, go to NexT config and see:

  # ...
  # Some contents...
  # ...
  mediumzoom: # Set or update mediumzoom CDN URL.


NexT releases new versions every month. You can update to latest master branch by the following command:

$ cd themes/next
$ git pull

And if you see any error message during update (something like «Commit your changes or stash them before you can merge»), recommended to learn Alternate Theme Config feature.
However, you can bypass update errors by using the Commit, Stash or Reset commands for local changes. See here how to do it.

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