This theme was inspired by Cactus Theme but I wanted a timeline for my portfolio and found something I could use from SPECTRE.CSS.
I also changed most of the initial theme design to be something more similar to the Material Design.
The pixel style switch was something I just did for fun to represent my passion in the game industry, and since I don’t see much themes with a theme switch, I thought it’ll be good to leave it for others to use.
Use your favourite editor to configure config.toml. More details in Configuration.
Test site (please make sure you’re in the MySite folder)
hugo server -t spectre-pixel
config.toml There’s a config (config.toml) in the exampleSite folder which you can use, just change the details and display texts to suit your needs.
Remember to copy the file to your MySite folder once you’re done editing the details.
About page Edit the _index.md file in the exampleSite/content/about folder to give more details about yourself.
However, the shortcode generates links to tags which need to exist in your posts’ tags or a 404 page will be displayed.
Styling Edit the style.css file in the static/css folder to change the fonts & colors as you please.
You can use color palettes from LOSPEC for the pixel theme.
Finally, please make sure the url("../images/avatar.png") & url("../images/pixel.png") are pointing to absolute URLs instead.
E.g. https://YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME.com/images/avatar.png & https://YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME/images/pixel.png
