Getting Started

There are two different methods to install the theme depending on how you plan on using it.

1. Clone Repository

I want to use this theme and might want to contribute to it.

Navigate to the root directory of your site and do the following:

git clone https://github.com/pacollins/calligraphy.git themes/calligraphy

2. Submodule

I want to use this theme, but I have no plans to contribute or make a pull request.

Navigate to the root directory of your site and do the following:

git submodule add https://github.com/pacollins/calligraphy.git themes/calligraphy
git submodule update --init --recursive

You should now be able to navigate to themes/calligraphy and see all of the theme files.

To update your site to the current version of the theme, navigate to the root directory and do the following:

git submodule update --remote --merge

Modifying

If you need to customize any aspect of the theme for personal use, simply create a duplicate file at the root directory. Note: You do not need to edit the theme files to customize theme. Refer to the Hugo documentation related lookup order.

For example, if you wanted to change the template for the header (<my-project>/themes/layouts/partials/site/header.html) you would create a new file at <my-project>/layouts/partials/site/header.html and base it off of the theme file. Hugo will then use your file instead of the theme file. This is the proper way to adjust files for personal use so that you do not make your site incompatible with future versions of the theme.

exampleSite

Within the calligraphy folder, you will find another folder called exampleSite This folder is what is used to build the demo and should provide you with an example of how to structure your site files.

Hugo's Built-In Server

To see a live version of your site locally, use the following command:

hugo server

Hugo will build your site and host a server locally. You can view this live at localhost:1313.
