Minimalist is a responsive theme with a focus on blogging based on the Minimalistic Ghost theme made by Raphael Riegger . Noteworthy features of this Hugo theme are the integration of a comment-system powered by Disqus, easy localization (l10n), support for RSS feeds, syntax highlighting for source code and sharing options in the blog posts.
Inside the folder of your Hugo site run:
$ mkdir themes $ cd themes $ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:digitalcraftsman/hugo-minimalist-theme.git
For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.
The config file
To use it, copy the
config.toml in the root folder of your Hugo site. Play around with the settings to tweak your site as you like.
Localization allows you to easily translate all strings in our website. Within
exampleSite/data you’ll find a file called
l10n.toml. If you’re not blogging in English replace all strings with their equivalents of your preferred language.
In order to see your site in action, run Hugo’s built-in local server.
$ hugo server -w
localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
