Inside the folder of your Hugo site run:

$ cd themes
$ git clone https://github.com/schmanat/hugo-highlights-theme

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.

Getting started

After installing the Hugo Highlights Theme it requires a just few more steps to get your site running.

The config file

Take a look inside the exampleSite folder of this theme. You'll find a file called config.toml

Change the background images

It's possible to change the background files for every section (about, services, ... ). To do this you could set every image in the config.toml of your site. The files are stored at static/images/.

Present your skills

This section should show your capabilities and skills. You can change this serverics at [params.services in the config.toml.

All icons are part of Fontawesome's icon font. Look at the website of Fontawesome for more icons. The icons are represented by their corresponding CSS class of Fontawesome. A skill is defined like this example:

  icon = "fa-camera-retro"
  title = "Magna Etiam"

Make the contact form working

Since this page will be static, you can use formspree.io as proxy to send the actual email. Each month, visitors can send you up to one thousand emails without incurring extra charges. Begin the setup by following the steps below:

  1. Enter your email address under 'email' in the config.toml
  2. Upload the generated site to your server
  3. Send a dummy email yourself to confirm your account
  4. Click the confirm link in the email form www.formspree.io
  5. Thats all. Enjoy mailing!

Nearly finished

In order to see your site in action, run Hugo's built-in local server.

$ hugo server

Now enter localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
