Hyde

Hyde is a brazen two-column hugo theme based on the Jekyll theme of the same name. It pairs a prominent sidebar with uncomplicated content.

Note: this is a fork I (Brendan Abolivier) made to adapt Hyde to my needs. More info below.

Contents

Installation

To install Hyde as your default theme, first install this repository in the themes/ directory:

$ cd themes/
$ git clone https://github.com/spf13/hyde.git

Second, specify hyde as your default theme in the config.toml file. Just add the line

theme = "hyde"

at the top of the file.

Options

Hyde includes some customizable options, typically applied via classes on the <body> element.

Sidebar menu

Create a list of nav links in the sidebar by assigning "menu=main" in the front matter.

Sticky sidebar content

By default Hyde ships with a sidebar that affixes it's content to the bottom of the sidebar. You can optionally disabled this by removing the .sidebar-sticky class from the sidebar's .container. Sidebar content will then normally flow from top to bottom.

<!-- Default sidebar -->
<div class="sidebar">
  <div class="container sidebar-sticky">
    ...
  </div>
</div>

<!-- Modified sidebar -->
<div class="sidebar">
  <div class="container">
    ...
  </div>
</div>

Themes

Hyde 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).

Hyde in red

There are eight themes available at this time.

Hyde theme classes

To use a theme, add the themeColor variable under params, like so:

TOML

theme = "hyde"

[params]
  themeColor = "theme-base-09"

YAML

theme: "hyde"

params:
  themeColor: "theme-base-09"

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

Hyde with reverse layout

To reverse page orientation, add the layoutReverse variable under params, like so:

TOML

theme = "hyde"

[params]
  layoutReverse = true

YAML

theme: "hyde"

params:
  layoutReverse: true

Disqus

You can optionally enable a comment system powered by Disqus for the posts. Simply add the variable disqusShortname to your config file.

TOML

disqusShortname = "spf13"

YAML

disqusShortname : spf13

Note: Previous version 1.0 the Disqus shortname had to be defined inside the [params] block.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics can be enabled by assigning your tracking code to the googleAnalytics variable in the config file:

TOML

googleAnalytics = "Your tracking code"

YAML

googleAnalytics: Your tracking code

Fork

This is a fork of the Hyde theme I (Brendan Abolivier) made containing a few changes I made:

  • Getting rid of Google Fonts
  • Adding FontAwesome
  • Adding meta tags for social network sharing and kind of SEO
  • Adding an author key in the params section from the configuration file
  • Adding special links to the sidebar menu using values from the params section in the configuration file:
Configuration key Description Example value
twitter Twitter @username BrenAbolivier
github GitHub username babolivier
email Email address hello@brendanabolivier.com
pgp PGP key fingerprint E1D4 B745 7A82 9D77 1FBA 8CAC E860 1572 74A2 8D7E
keyserver The key server to use in the key's menu link (must support HTTPS) pgp.key-server.io
  • Replacing the copyright key in the params section from the configuration file with a creativeCommons key, expected to be a Creative Commons license identifier (such as by, by-sa, etc.)
  • Adding a proper RSS feed template including items' descriptions in <description> tags, and their contents in <content:encoded> tags
  • Adding support for posts' thumbnails, by supporting a thumbnail key in a post's front matter. Note that this value must not contain the https://myblog.tld/images part of the image's URL, which is added automatically before the key's value.

Note that none of the configuration parameters I added are optional (mainly because I don't need them to be, but PRs are welcome!). A live demo is available on my blog.

Of course, everything I didn't mess with belongs to the Hugo Hyde theme's authors and contributor.
