Just when I thought no one was interested and decided to do my own thing two people reply
I think what I really want is usually called a pattern library. Most of these ‘style guides’ seem to require configuration and documentation added before a generation step. If possible I’d like to get everything working through Hugo. And I really just want code examples I can theme with CSS whilst building a site, not some high falutin’ corporate style-guide - most of the time I’m the only person who’ll ever look at them.
What I had in mind is adding a content/style-guide folder to my base theme/starter site containing a page or pages of standard html elements, common ‘components’ and examples of Hugo shortcode output as @brunoamaral shows.
I’d also like to bring in something like Palx github/single page app and related projects. Where we’d define a brand colour in theme.toml or wherever and a whole palette of harmonious colours gets output in a page.
Because of the shortcodes, maybe other things, I feel like this needs tied fairly closely with a base theme/starter site. (I’m working on updating mine right now.) But I’m certainly open to collaboration, discussion, moving parts out to a different project or whatever.
Want to elaborate on what you had in mind @easherma?
Hopeful I can post back some working code later today…
