Theme Documentation - Basics

Note
This article was last updated on 2022-04-22, the content may be out of date.

Discover what the Hugo - FixIt theme is all about and the core-concepts behind it.

1 Requirements

Thanks to the simplicity of Hugo, Hugo is the only dependency of this theme.

Just install latest version of  Hugo (> 0.62.0) for your OS (Windows, Linux, macOS).

Why not support earlier versions of Hugo?
Since Markdown Render Hooks was introduced in the Hugo Christmas Edition, this theme only supports Hugo versions above 0.62.0.
Hugo extended version is recommended
Since some features of this theme need to processes  SCSS to  CSS, it is recommended to use Hugo extended version for better experience.

2 Installation

The following steps are here to help you initialize your new website. If you don’t know Hugo at all, we strongly suggest you learn more about it by following this great documentation for beginners.

2.1 Create Your Project

Hugo provides a new command to create a new website:

1
2
hugo new site my_website
cd my_website

2.2 Install the Theme

The FixIt theme’s repository is: https://github.com/Lruihao/FixIt.

You can download the latest release  .zip file of the theme and extract it in the themes directory.

Alternatively, clone this repository to the themes directory:

1
git clone https://github.com/Lruihao/FixIt.git themes/FixIt

Or, create an empty git repository and make this repository a submodule of your site directory:

1
2
git init
git submodule add https://github.com/Lruihao/FixIt.git themes/FixIt

    # false is a necessary configuration (https://github.com/Lruihao/FixIt/issues/43)
    noClasses = false
Note
  • When building the website, you can set a theme by using --theme option. However, we suggest you modify the configuration file (config.toml) and set the theme as the default.
  • FixIt NEW | 0.2.14 The FixIt theme provides sub menu support. Please refer to Menu Advanced Configuration for details.

2.4 Create Your First Post

Here is the way to create your first post:

1
hugo new posts/first_post.md

Feel free to edit the post file by adding some sample content and replacing the title value in the beginning of the file.

Note
By default all posts and pages are created as a draft. If you want to render these pages, remove the property draft: true from the metadata, set the property draft: false or add -D/--buildDrafts parameter to hugo command.

2.5 Launching the Website Locally

Launch by using the following command:

1
2
# `hugo serve` is an alias of `hugo server`, which is not a misspelling ~
hugo server

Go to http://localhost:1313.

/en/theme-documentation-basics/basic-configuration-preview.png
Basic configuration preview

Tip
When you run hugo server, when the contents of the files change, the page automatically refreshes with the changes.
Note

Since the theme use .Scratch in Hugo to implement some features, it is highly recommended that you add --disableFastRender parameter to hugo server command for the live preview of the page you are editing.

1
hugo server --disableFastRender

2.6 Build the Website

When your site is ready to deploy, run the following command:

1
hugo

A public folder will be generated, containing all static content and assets for your website. It can now be deployed on any web server.

Tip
The website can be automatically published and hosted with Netlify (Read more about Automated HUGO deployments with Netlify). Alternatively, you can use AWS Amplify, Github pages, Render and more…

Hugo environments

Default environments are development with hugo server and production with hugo.

Due to limitations in the local development environment, the comment system, CDN and fingerprint will not be enabled in the development environment.

You could enable these features with hugo server -e production.

The default CDN data file is located in themes/FixIt/assets/data/cdn/ directory. You can store your own data file in the same path under your project: assets/data/cdn/.

Tips about social Configuration

FixIt NEW | 0.2.0

You can directly set your ID to get a default social link and its icon:

1
2
[params.social]
  Mastodon = "@xxxx"

The social link generated is https://mastodon.technology/@xxxx.

Or You can set more options through a dict:

 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
[params.social]
  [params.social.Mastodon]
    # weight when arranging icons (the greater the weight, the later the icon is positioned)
    weight = 0
    # your social ID
    id = "@xxxx"
    # prefix of your social link
    prefix = "https://mastodon.social/"
    # content hovering on the icon
    title = "Mastodon"

The default data of all supported social links is located in themes/FixIt/assets/data/social.yaml, which is you can refer to.

3.2 Favicons, Browserconfig, Manifest

It is recommended to put your own favicons:

  • apple-touch-icon.png (180x180)
  • favicon-32x32.png (32x32)
  • favicon-16x16.png (16x16)
  • mstile-150x150.png (150x150)
  • android-chrome-192x192.png (192x192)
  • android-chrome-512x512.png (512x512)

into /static. They’re easily created via https://realfavicongenerator.net/.

Customize browserconfig.xml and site.webmanifest to set theme-color and background-color.

3.3 Style Customization

FixIt CHANGED | 0.2.8
Note
Hugo extended version is necessary for the style customization.

FixIt theme has been built to be as configurable as possible by defining custom .scss style files.

The directory including the custom .scss style files is assets/css relative to your project root directory.

In assets/css/_override.scss, you can override the variables in themes/FixIt/assets/css/_variables.scss to customize the style.

Here is a example:

1
2
@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Fira+Mono:400,700&display=swap&subset=latin-ext');
$code-font-family: Fira Mono, Source Code Pro, Menlo, Consolas, Monaco, monospace;

In assets/css/_custom.scss, you can add some css style code to customize the style.

3.3.1 Page Style

FixIt NEW | 0.2.13

The FixIt theme provides a page width configuration option pageStyle and three values.

  • narrow Keep <v0.2.13 page/toc width ratio
  • normal New default page/toc width ratio
  • wide Larger page/toc width ratio

In addition, you can also customize the pageStyle value in assets/css/_custom.scss

For example: pageStyle="custom"

      width: 15%;
    }
  }
}

@media only screen and (max-width: 1440px) {
  [page-style='custom'] {
    .page {
      width: 60%;
    }

}

  [page-style='custom'] {

      width: 56%;
    }

    aside {
      width: 22%;
    }
  }
}
FixIt NEW | 0.2.13

There are three css common class for print view in FixIt Theme.

  • page-break-before Insert page break before element
  • page-break-after Insert page break after element
  • print-d-none Hide elements in print view

Here is a simple exmple:

1
2
3
4
5
<div class="page-break-before"></div>
<div class="page-break-after"></div>
<div class="print-d-none">
  Something you want to hide in the print view is written here.
</div>

Hugo has a simple yet powerful menu system.

According to the interface provided by Hugo, FixIt theme only realizes some functions, but I think it is enough to meet the needs of most people and make users easier to use.

    pre = ""
    # you can add extra information after the name (HTML format is supported), such as icons
    post = ""
    name = "Posts"
    url = "/posts/"
    # title will be shown when you hover on this menu link
    title = ""
    weight = 1
    # FixIt NEW | 0.2.14 add user-defined content to menu items
    [menu.main.params]
      # add css class to a specific menu item
      class = 'text-center'
      # whether set as a draft menu item whose function is similar to a draft post/page
      draft = false

3.4.1 Sub Menu

FixIt NEW | 0.2.14

In consideration of practicability and typesetting, the FixIt theme only supports two-tier nested menus, which can be configured through the parent field in the menu configuration.

The parent item of a menu item should be the identifier of another menu item, and the identifier should be unique in the menu.

3.4.2 Menu Params

FixIt NEW | 0.2.14

You can also add user-defined content to menu items via the params field. The FixIt theme currently provides two parameters:

  • class {String} add css class to a specific menu item
  • draft {Boolean} whether set as a draft menu item whose function is similar to a draft post/page
Note
The draft menu items and posts/pages can be rendered by starting the Hugo server command or adding the -D/--buildDrafts parameter to hugo command.
Tip

This helps to distinguish the different contents of preview environment and production environment during deployment.

For example:

3.4.3 Add content to Menu

It’s also possible to create menu entries from the page by configuring front matter (i.e. the .md-file).

Here is a yaml example:

Then, for each new page, append the language code to the file name.

Single file my-page.md is split in three files:

  • in English: my-page.en.md
  • in Chinese: my-page.zh-cn.md
  • in French: my-page.fr.md
Note
Be aware that only translated pages are displayed in menu. It’s not replaced with default language content.
Tip
Use Front Matter parameter to translate urls too.

4.3 Overwrite Translation Strings

Translations strings are used for common default values used in the theme. Translations are available in some languages, but you may use another language or want to override default values.

To override these values, create a new file in your local i18n folder i18n/<languageCode>.toml and inspire yourself from themes/FixIt/i18n/en.toml.

By the way, as these translations could be used by other people, please take the time to propose a translation by making a PR to the theme!

FixIt NEW | 0.2.0

Based on Lunr.js or algolia, searching is supported in FixIt theme.

5.1 Output Configuration

In order to generate index.json for searching, add JSON output file type to the home of the outputs part in your site configuration.

[outputs]
  home = ["HTML", "RSS", "JSON"]

5.2 Search Configuration

Based on index.json generated by Hugo, you could activate searching.

Here is the search configuration in your site configuration:

[params.search]
  enable = true
  # type of search engine ("lunr", "algolia")
  type = "lunr"
  # max index length of the chunked content
  contentLength = 4000
  # placeholder of the search bar
  placeholder = ""
  # FixIt NEW | 0.2.1 max number of results length
  maxResultLength = 10
  # FixIt NEW | 0.2.3 snippet length of the result
  snippetLength = 30
  # FixIt NEW | 0.2.1 HTML tag name of the highlight part in results
  highlightTag = "em"
  # FixIt NEW | 0.2.4 whether to use the absolute URL based on the baseURL in search index
  absoluteURL = false
  [params.search.algolia]
    index = ""
    appID = ""
    searchKey = ""
How to choose search engine?

The following is a comparison of two search engines:

  • lunr: simple, no need to synchronize index.json, no limit for contentLength, but high bandwidth and low performance (Especially for Chinese which needs a large segmentit library)
  • algolia: high performance and low bandwidth, but need to synchronize index.json and limit for contentLength

FixIt NEW | 0.2.3 The content of the post is separated by h2 and h3 HTML tag to improve query performance and basically implement full-text search. contentLength is used to limit the max index length of the part starting with h2 and h3 HTML tag.

Tips about algolia
You need to upload index.json files to algolia to activate searching. You could upload the index.json files by browsers but a CLI tool may be better. Algolia Atomic is a good choice. To be compatible with Hugo multilingual mode, you need to upload different index.json for each language to the different index of algolia, such as zh-cn/index.json or fr/index.json
