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.

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">

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


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:


theme = "hyde"

  themeColor = "theme-base-09"


theme: "hyde"

  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

Hyde's page orientation can be reversed with a single class.

<body class="layout-reverse">


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


  disqusShortname = "spf13"


  disqusShortname: "spf13"
