Hugo Theme NorthEast

A Hugo theme with Tailwind CSS.


You'll need git and npm installed.

Make sure to install postcss, postcss-cli and autoprefixer globally in your environment, as Hugo Pipe's PostCSS requires it.

npm install -g postcss postcss-cli autoprefixer

Make sure to use a minimum Hugo version of v0.69.0 and above.


Go to the root directory of your Hugo website, or create a new site with

hugo new site hugo-example-site
cd hugo-example-site
git init

Now you can add the theme with

git submodule add themes/hugo-northeast

To install the node modules (most importantly Tailwind CSS),

cd themes/hugo-northeast
npm install

Finally, add theme = "hugo-northeast in the config.toml file in the root directory of your Hugo website.

The website is now good to go! Run hugo server -DF --disableFastRender to see a live preview of it. To build the website for deployment, run

hugo --gc --minify

Files in the public/ directory can now be served.
