Getting started

Once you have Hugo up and running, you must:

Create a Hugo project:

$ hugo new site my-site

And then install tinyce:

$ cd themes
$ git clone

If you are using Hugo v0.11 or below, please read this

Now you can set tinyce as the default theme for your site by adding this line in the config file:

theme = "tinyce-hugo-theme"

Or you can start the server with:

hugo server --theme=tinyce-hugo-theme --buildDrafts --watch

Setting Variables

Tinyce needs a custom archetype in order to work properly, behind the covers you will only need to define two new variables in the front matter section of your contents.

  • color : the color associated with the post, valid colors are: red, green, blue, yellow, orange and grey.

  • icon : a valid font-awesome icon name, without the fa- prefix. For example, instead of fa-heart, you only need to put heart. here is a cheatsheet of valid icons.


Categories = ["Development", "GoLang"]
Description = "My short description"
Tags = ["Development", "golang"]
color = "green"
icon = "heart"
title = "Go is cool"
date = 2014-08-09T05:04:40Z
