A port of hexo-theme-pure for Hugo. Powerful & Clean. Iconfont



Since I mainly do back-end development, I don’t know anything about the front-end (CSS or something). It’s a hard-hitting transplant. Some of the features that I like very much don’t know how to add it. It’s a waste of time to study too long, so If you have a very good feature and hope to put it up, it would be best.

The file structure of repo is roughly referred to hexo-theme-pure and should be clearer. It can be modified according to your needs. If you look at the file structure a little, you will find that the function has not been implemented.


  1. [2019-11-19] Add mainSections param to avoid hard code.You can set this param to choose which directory under your content folder you want to render. posts by default. You can also unset it,but there seems have some problem.

  2. [2019-11-19] Support MathJax(PR) Reference:MathJax-With-Hugo& Upgrade jQuery version(PR).


    not-set-mmark set-mmark
  3. [2019-12-07] beautify toc by tocbot

  4. [2019-12-24] support pagination

  5. [2019-12-31]

    1. support highlight shortcode Note: Just compatible with basic highlight usage like:

      {{< highlight go >}}
      // ... code
      {{< / highlight >}}

    If you use hugo official example like,rendering will be very ugly.I don't want to compatible with it or maybe you want. Don't forget send a pr~ thanks.

     {{< highlight go "linenos=table,hl_lines=8 15-17,linenostart=199" >}}
     // ... code
     {{< / highlight >}}
    1. Minify css&js file.



$ git clone themes/pure
$ ./hugo server -t pure
