I had removed some functionality from my theme before making it a public repo.
So now my site content and the theme are in different git repos. The theme is a public repo and the site is a private one. I use the theme using git submodule. So people who use my theme do not get that feature (basically a partial file and a small change in single.html with some personal info).
I want to keep the 2 files specific to my site in a folder in my site repo and copy it into the theme folder during the hugo build process.
How can that be done today? I cannot “fork” my theme as git doesn’t allow forking one’s own repo.
To override a theme’s templates you need to include a
/layouts/ directory under the root of your project and create the necessary templates with the changes.
Git has the concept of branches and merging them. A “fork” functionality is a feature of your web-based git hosting site.
You can create a new repo and push your changes to it. It might not be an automatic process like pressing the “fork” button, but it works as expected.
Thanks, branching is not an option for me as I wanted to keep some private files.
Another repo ( basically two versions of the same theme) would be a hassle.
The solution from @alexandros was perfect for me!
