Get the theme
From the root of your Hugo site:
$ cd themes
$ git clone https://github.com/hivickylai/hugo-theme-introduction.git introduction
Configure your site
From the exampleSite, copy config.toml to the root folder of your Hugo site and change the fields as you like.
Set your baseurl to your site’s domain
Set your blog’s title and your first name
Set your introduction header height (use “medium”, “large”, or “fullheight”)
Choose “light” or “dark” theme
Set your avatar image
Set your timezone, if you choose to show it
Choose whether or not to show the Blog and Projects sections, and configure them to your liking
Input your social site urls and font-awesome icon names - use as many as you like
Create About and Contact pages
$ hugo new about.md
$ hugo new contact.md
Then edit the markdown files with the content you’d like shown in your main page’s About and Contact sections.
Preview your site locally
Use Hugo’s built-in server to see your site in action as you make changes.
$ hugo serve -t introduction
Visit localhost:1313 in your browser to see a live preview of your site.
Projects are ordered on the main page by weight first, then by date.
The image will show up on the main page and in the project’s details view. If you don’t specify an image, the placeholderimg from your site’s config.toml file will be used.
If you don’t specify a title, only the photo will show. You can still add content to the file to “caption” the image, and this will show in the popup. (Great way to create a simple gallery!)
If you leave external_link empty, clicking on a project on your main page will pop up a window with the project’s details. If you specify a url instead, clicking on the project on your main page will take you to that url.
