You can then either build Hugo on the command line and pass the -t capsule
flag, or you can add theme = "capsule" to your config.toml file.
Note: Any additional documentation will be added to the Capsule
Demo site, not here.
1. Syntax highlighting (via pygments)
For code blocks, pick the highlighter style in config.toml by setting:
pygmentsstyle = "<style>"
For dark highlighter themes, you should rebuild capsule CSS with
build/extra/syntax.sass. Uncomment it from the capsule.sass file and run
npm run build.
Without that file, the background color will default to Bulma’s light
background-color, and light colored elements meant to be displayed against dark
backgrounds from dark themes will be hard to read.
2. Unused classes in Bulma
Capsule is set to only compile the classes it needs. To enable more Bulma
classes, uncomment the relevant sass files in build/bulma/bulma.sass.
3. Enable automatic generation of nav menus
In your config.toml files, set:
SectionPagesMenu = "main"
With this set, capsule with automatically generate a navigation menu in the
navbar based on all the sections (the directories inside the content/
directory) present in your site.
4. Add git metadata to your pages
If you host your site on a public git vc server, you can set capsule to build a
“Last edited on …” note to each page that uses git metadata to display the
date of the last commit and add a link to its blob on your public repo.
The repo variable should point to the url of your repo for your website. The
above example uses GitHub, but GitLab and any other site that follows the
format of <siteurl>/<user>/<repo>/commit/<hash> will work, too.
Any CSS or JS specified here will add to the site <head> when Hugo renders
6. Enable table of contents
To generate a table of contents for a specific page, add to the toml header:
toc = true
The table of contents will contain all the header items defined in the
markdown. The nesting levels for each match the header weight (h1, h2, etc.).
To (re)build the CSS, you need to have npm and installed. Clone the
capsule repository and once in it run:
and then build by:
npm run build
You can enable/disable sass components by editing build/sass/capsule.sass
before building. To use your own customized version of capsule, a) fork this
repository and set the Git submodule to use it, or b) make a symlink to your
custom build in the Hugo themes/ directory, assuming your build system allows
