I’m currently trying to port a website using Polymer Elements from jekyll to hugo. This has worked quite well so far, however, the old website uses the components
paper-button. Since these are not included in the Polymer Hugo Theme, I tried adding them myself. This has not worked.
I’ve tried to simply add it using bower:
bower install --save PolymerElements/paper-card
Since the newest version does not have a
paper-button.html anymore, I have tried using an older version, thus changing the command above to:
bower install --save PolymerElements/paper-card#1.0.5
This totally broke my website and I had to delete the theme and reinstall it.
I’ve tried opening an issue on the github page, but since the initial commit 4 years ago, there has not been any activity from the dev side there. The forks also didn’t yield any answers or results.
I have also previously been unable to add a custom css stylesheet to move that stuff out of the
header.html, which did not work either. I’m thus thinking that this theme might not be expandable when it comes to the
static folder. I am fairly new to hugo and website design though, so I might just be getting something fundamentally wrong here.
Can anyone of you help me out with my problem?
