This theme was highly inspired by the hello-friend and hermit. A lot of kudos for theier great work.

  • Great reading experience thanks to Inter UI font, made by Rasmus Andersson
  • Nice code highlighting thanks to PrismJS
  • An easy way to modify the theme with Hugo tooling
  • Fully responsive
  • Support for social icons

How to start

You can download the theme manually by going to https://github.com/rhazdon/hugo-theme-hello-friend-ng.git and pasting it to themes/hello-friend-ng in your root directory.

You can also clone it directly to your Hugo folder:

$ git clone https://github.com/rhazdon/hugo-theme-hello-friend-ng.git themes/hello-friend-ng

If you don't want to make any radical changes, it's the best option, because you can get new updates when they are available. To do so, include it as a git submodule:

$ git submodule add https://github.com/rhazdon/hugo-theme-hello-friend-ng.git themes/hello-friend-ng

How to configure

The theme doesn't require any advanced configuration. Just copy the following config file. Note: There are more options to configure. Take a look into the config.toml in exampleSite.

baseurl = "/"
languageCode = "en-us"
theme = "hello-friend-ng"

[params]
  dateform        = "Jan 2, 2006"
  dateformShort   = "Jan 2"
  dateformNum     = "2006-01-02"
  dateformNumTime = "2006-01-02 15:04 -0700"

  # Set disableReadOtherPosts to true in order to hide the links to other posts.
  disableReadOtherPosts = false

  # Metadata mostly used in document's head
  description = "My new homepage or blog"
  keywords = "homepage, blog"
  images = [""]

  # Directory name of your blog content (default is `content/posts`)
  contentTypeName = "posts"

  # Default theme "light" or "dark"
  defaultTheme = "dark"

[languages]
  [languages.en]
    title = "Hello Friend NG"
    subtitle = "A simple theme for Hugo"
    keywords = ""
    copyright = ""
    readOtherPosts = "Read other posts"

    [languages.en.params.logo]
      logoText = "hello friend ng"
      logoHomeLink = "/"
    # or
    #
    # path = "/img/your-example-logo.svg"
    # alt = "Your example logo alt text"

  # And you can even create generic menu
  [[menu.main]]
    identifier = "blog"
    name       = "Blog"
    url        = "/posts"

How to run your site

From your Hugo root directory run:

$ hugo server -t hello-friend-ng

and go to localhost:1313 in your browser. From now on all the changes you make will go live, so you don't need to refresh your browser every single time.

Known issues

There is a bug in Hugo that sometimes causes the main page not to render correctly. The reason is an empty taxonomy part. Related issue tickets: !14 !59.

Either you comment it out completely or you write the following in

[taxonomies]
  tag      = "tags"
  category = "categories"

How to edit the theme
