You have done a terrific job Farhad! Hugoplate is absolutely awesome!


It was a team work . The main magic man is @somratpro (our lead developer)


I really love this theme! Thanks for building it.

Where do I find the theme documentation? I’d love to know what options I can use for the front matter to customize my website based on your theme. Thank you!

Thanks for the response! I’ve indeed gone through the documentation at the link you provided, but I am looking for template-specific options related documentation. Something like this (for another Hugo template: Theme Documentation - Basics - DoIt)

Is there something like this, that I can refer to? Thank you!

Hey @iamsridhar,
Till now, we don’t have full documentation for this template. But we did explain how to set up this template for your project. Since it’s a starter template, and most of the template users are developers, I don’t think we need that much detailed docs for it. Because developers know how to deal with Hugo.

@Md_Farhad_Hossen Thanks so much for sharing! It’s a great theme, with a very clean design. And really easy to set up! I’m new to Tailwind and Hugo, so decided to start with your theme and learn for a personal project.

One question I had was your reason for using Tailwind Boostrap Grid rather than just going with straight Tailwind?

Hey @mei.yoshida, there is no specific reason, but I prefer flex instead of the grid, and the tailwind-bootstrap-grid provides me this functionality. since it’s a tailwind plugin, it doesn’t apply any extra CSS.

The gallery feature looks good !!!
