Lanyon is an unassuming Blogger template that places content first by tucking away navigation in a hidden drawer.

Jekyll Version :

Lanyon ships with eight optional themes based on the base16 color scheme. Apply a theme to change the color scheme (mostly applies to sidebar and links).

There are eight themes available at this time.

Available theme classes

To use a theme, add any one of the available theme classes to the <body> element in the default.html layout, like so:

<body class="theme-base-08">

To create your own theme, look to the Themes section of included CSS file. Copy any existing theme (they're only a few lines of CSS), rename it, and change the provided colors.

Reverse layout

Lanyon with reverse layout Lanyon with reverse layout and open sidebar

Reverse the page orientation with a single class.

<body class="layout-reverse">

Sidebar overlay instead of push

Make the sidebar overlap the viewport content with a single class:

<body class="sidebar-overlay">

This will keep the content stationary and slide in the sidebar over the side content. It also adds a box-shadow based outline to the toggle for contrast against backgrounds, as well as a box-shadow on the sidebar for depth.

It's also available for a reversed layout when you add both classes:

<body class="layout-reverse sidebar-overlay">
