Build Status Hugo Version GitHub release GitHub contributors License: MIT

Geekdoc is a simple Hugo theme for documentations. It is intentionally designed as a fast and lean theme and may not fit the requirements of complex projects. If a more feature-complete theme is required there are a lot of good alternatives out there. You can find a demo and the full documentation at

Build and release process

This theme is subject to a CI driven build and release process common for software development. During the release build, all necessary assets are automatically built by webpack and bundled in a release tarball. You can download the latest release from the GitHub release page.

Due to the fact that webpack and npm scripts are used as pre-processors, the theme cannot be used from the main branch by default. If you want to use the theme from a cloned branch instead of a release tarball you'll need to install webpack locally and run the build script once to create all required assets.

# install required packages from package.json
npm install

# run the build script to build required assets
npm run build

# build release tarball
npm run pack

See the Getting Started Guide for details about the different setup options.


Special thanks to all contributors. If you would like to contribute, please see the instructions.

Geekdoc is inspired and partially based on the hugo-book theme, thanks Alex Shpak for your work.
