I built a modern blog/portfolio theme for Hugo, great for personal branding sites and more!

Hi all,

I recently decided to release the theme behind my personal site to the public: Hugo Liftoff.

It’s a modern blog/portfolio theme catered towards those wanting to jump-start a personal branding site or portfolio in any industry.

This is my first attempt at creating a theme so let me know what you think!

Some notable features:

  • Series taxonomy with next/prev and “in this series” list
  • Nested subsections and submenus
  • Customizable newsletter opt-in with Netlify forms
  • Landing page
  • Many other customizations and SEO-friendly features

While there are still a few kinks to work out, I’m pretty happy with how it came out so far.

If you’re searching for a nice looking theme where you can blog and showcase your projects, definitely give it a shot.

I’m also looking for contributors and plan to keep improving it over time so feel free to fork it and play around!

Version 2 of Hugo Liftoff is live with a new demo site, better documentation, and a handful of enhancements / fixes.

I’ve still yet to get my pull request merged into the official themes site. Fingers crossed that will happen soon.

If anyone wants to help contribute I would be really appreciative. Together we can build the best looking and most customizable blog/portfolio Hugo theme for creators!

All feedback welcome.
