theme.toml - Classic Theme

Classic is forked from the XMin theme, written by Yihui Xie. I made a fresh remix of it for my personal blog. It provides some simplifications, highlight.js for syntax highlighting, and slick fonts.


1: Install Hugo.

brew install hugo

2: Create a new site.

hugo new site classic

3: Change to themes dir.

cd classic/themes

4: Clone the repo

git clone

5: Copy the contents of the exampleSite directory into {dir}/classic.

6: Enjoy and customize to your hearts content!

New Posts

To make new posts, simply use the command line:

hugo new post/

Header Colour

To adjust the header colour, head to static/css/style.css and change...

header {
    background: #613DC1;

... background: to any colour value you'd like!

For header font:

header a {
    color: #fff;

Change color: to a nice matching colour.
