Hugo theme Recluse

Recluse is a minimal and fast theme for Hugo and a minor alteration of the Hermit theme. It's built for bloggers who want a simple and focused website.

There are a few ways Recluse differs from Hermit:

  • highlight.js is used for syntax highlighting, making it compatible with blogdown
  • More space between bullet points list items.
  • The navigation bar is always visible.
  • Has MathJax enabled by default.


Run this command from the root of your Hugo directory (Git needs to be installed):

$ git clone https://github.com/wfondrie/recluse.git themes/recluse

For configuration details, refer to the original Hermit documentaiton
