Hugo

I'm porting all of the html5up themes

So, I started to create a Hugo theme from the HTML5Up Editorial theme, thinking I could use that as a test ground for my resource work (it uses SASS, has lots of thumbnails etc.) and doing that I thought: This is boring as hell, and I had a look at the other themes – which looks structural similar.

So I thought I could do them all (there are some beautiful themes there). This is very much work-in-progress:

I know some of those themes are already available for Hugo, but they are ported by different people, and I’m not sure the portability (i.e. can I just switch between the themes from more or less one config?) is all that fantastic.

And by doing this, I may learn a thing or two about themes …

Good work man! I’ve ported a few of them myself and originally had the intention of doing exactly what you’re doing, but work got in the way. Plus, I paid for the Pixelarity themes and the overlap in themes had me questioning some of the licensing and if I could publicly release the themes at that point. I was probably overthinking it though.

I paid for the Pixelarity themes and the overlap in themes had me questioning some of the licensing and if I could publicly release the themes at that point. I was probably overthinking it though.

I read the Pixelarity terms, which I think would not allow me to repackage them as public Hugo themes. Not sure. But the CC-BY-SA license is fairly easy to understand and requires very little from the end user (proper credit in the footer should be enough). It is basically the Wikipedia license.

Did anyone ever get some of these ported? I’ll be doing a site using the Relativity from Pixelarity theme and would be a waste of time to port it if someone else had already done so :slight_smile:
