This theme uses the “Tachyons” CSS library. This will allow you to manipulate the design of the theme by changing class names in HTML without touching the original CSS files. For more information see the Tachyons website.
Inside the folder of your Hugo site run:
$ cd themes
$ git clone https://github.com/budparr/gohugo-theme-ananke.git
For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.
After installing the theme successfully it requires a just a few more steps to get your site running.
The config file
Take a look inside the exampleSite folder of this theme. You’ll find a file called config.toml. To use it, copy the config.toml in the root folder of your Hugo site. Feel free to change the strings in this theme.
You may need to delete the line: themesDir = "../.."
Change the hero background
For any page or post you can add a featured image by including the local path in front matter (see content in the ExampleSite folder for examples): featured_image: '/images/gohugo-default-sample-hero-image.jpg'
You don’t need an image though. The default background color is black, but you can change the color, by changing the default color class in the config.toml file. Choose a background color from any on the Tachyons library site, and preface it with “bg-”
example: background_color_class = "bg-blue" or background_color_class = "bg-gray"
Activate the contact form
This theme includes a shortcode for a contact form that you can add to any page (there is an example on the contact page in the exampleSite folder). One option is to use formspree.io as proxy to send the actual email. Each month, visitors can send you up to one thousand emails without incurring extra charges. Visit the Formspree site to get the “action” link and add it to your shortcode like this:
