It is a brazen two-column theme that pairs a prominent sidebar with uncomplicated content. It's based on Poole, the Jekyll butler.

Hyde is a theme built on top of Poole, which provides a fully furnished Jekyll setup—just download and start the Jekyll server. See the Poole usage guidelines for how to install and use Jekyll.


Hyde includes some customizable options, typically applied via classes on the <body> element.

Sidebar menu

Create a list of nav links in the sidebar by assigning each Jekyll page the correct layout in the page's front-matter.

layout: page
title: About

Why require a specific layout? Jekyll will return all pages, including the atom.xml, and with an alphabetical sort order. To ensure the first link is Home, we exclude the index.html page from this list by specifying the page layout.

Sticky sidebar content

By default Hyde ships with a sidebar that affixes it's content to the bottom of the sidebar. You can optionally disable this by removing the .sidebar-sticky class from the sidebar's .container. Sidebar content will then normally flow from top to bottom.

<!-- Default sidebar -->
<div class="sidebar">
  <div class="container sidebar-sticky">

<!-- Modified sidebar -->
<div class="sidebar">
  <div class="container">


Hyde ships with eight optional themes based on the base16 color scheme. Apply a theme to change the color scheme (mostly applies to sidebar and links).

There are eight themes available at this time.

Hyde theme classes

To use a theme, add anyone of the available theme classes to the <body> element in the default.html layout, like so:

<body class="theme-base-08">

To create your own theme, look to the Themes section of included CSS file. Copy any existing theme (they're only a few lines of CSS), rename it, and change the provided colors.

Reverse layout

Hyde's page orientation can be reversed with a single class.

<body class="layout-reverse">


Hyde has two branches, but only one is used for active development.

  • master for development. All pull requests should be submitted against master.
  • gh-pages for our hosted site, which includes our analytics tracking code. Please avoid using this branch.
