Port of Nick Balestra's Cactus theme to Hugo.
Cactus is a minimalistic theme for bloggers based on the default theme of the same-named Cactus static site generator written in Python and Nick Balestra's Jekyll port. Noteworthy features of this Hugo theme are the integration of a comment-system powered by Disqus, a customizable about page, support for RSS feeds, syntax highlighting for source code, and sharing options for blog posts.
A fork of this theme can be found at github.com/nodejh/hugo-theme-cactus-plus
Inside the folder of your Hugo site, run:
$ cd themes $ git clone https://github.com/digitalcraftsman/hugo-cactus-theme.git
For more information, please read Hugo's official setup guide.
Make sure to update the
themesDirproperty in the config file to point to your site's theme folder, otherwise an error will be thrown indicating the themes folder is unable to be found.
You can add a social link panel in the footer by adding entries to the
socialblock in the
config.toml. You can choose between two icon fonts:
iconFontvariable. The Mono social icons offer three styles of icons: circle, rounded, or default (empty).
To see your site in action, run Hugo's built-in local server.
$ hugo server
