Cactus Theme

Toasted Cactus is a really minimalistic theme for bloggers based on Cactus for Hugo. Tracking code, sharing, disqus and highlight.js were removed, resulting in a base design < 5kb minified and gzipped. Screenshot


Inside the folder of your Hugo site run:

$ cd themes
$ git clone

For more information read the official setup guide of Hugo.

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 strings as you like to customize your website.

Make sure to update the themesDir property 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.

About page

Use the about page to introduce yourself to your visitors. You can customize the content as you like in the config.toml. Furthermore, you should replace the avatar placeholder with a great image of yourself.

Hide pages

Pages can be hidden and don't appear in the post list on the homepage if you add the variable hidden = true to the frontmatter. This allows you to link from elsewhere, i.e. just the menu.

Nearly finished

In order to see your site in action, run Hugo's built-in local server.

$ hugo server

Now enter localhost:1313 in the address bar of your browser.
