TWO years ago I brought up this point.
It’s a single page generator theme with sections and a butt load of settings in the config file, a nice set of shortcodes and a guide and starter built from …you guessed…Hugo! It’s mobile first and responsive. There is a very nice version of the youtube shortcode with many features including using image thumbs which will make your pages load way faster. Might be worth stealing for your project.
If you need a fast way to “whip” out a page that looks custom this is it.
Here is the guide
Here is the Starter
I’m already using it to sell my house. It’s definitely functional. That’s three sites I’ve built with it already. It uses the theme I developed as a submodule so it’s easy to incorporate changes I make to the theme.
It’s in pre-release at this point. I need some Hugo experienced and not so experienced folks to give it try and give me some feed back before I continue on and eventually ask for it to be put on the showcase.
- You can leave feedback in the bottom comments of the guide.
- If you find issues with the rendering of the page/theme then open an issue at github for the theme.

- If you see errors in the guide’s content then open a issue at the guide repo. I have yet to finish the rest of the modal content in the plugins section so no need to point that out. [guide content issues] (https://github.com/dkebler/landingpage-guide/issues)
I want to thank Steve for creating Hugo and especially @bep Bjorn for answering so many of my questions in a timely and thoughtful manner. His help got me through a few tough issues with the templating. Hugo is such a cool project and without this open source tool it would not be possible to make my tool which itself is open and free.
