Port of Now-UI theme

Last night I came across the Creative Tim website and the Now UI Kit.

It uses bootstrap 4, same as my previous template, so in a few hours I was able to port it to Hugo. I barely tested it, so if anyone would like to take it for a spin, here is the link: https://github.com/brunoamaral/Hugo-Now-UI

I’m using sections as “Stories” and a few other features. Off the top of my head:

  • Header photo for homepage, single pages and posts with auto resize and crop
  • Content organised by “Stories” and their [^1]
  • Instagram section for your photos
  • Option to hide the header
  • Option to have content unlisted[^2]
  • Automatic image galleries using Hugo Resources and photoswipe.js [^3]
  • Support for Portuguese and English in i18n folder
  • Optional bash script to generate new stories.
  • Custom twitter-card tags
  • ld+json format for all pages

[^1]: See the example content in stories/simple-things
[^2]: remember to delete the unlisted section if you want to keep it hidden from prying eyes.
[^3]: Look in the museum-tour story for examples

If you take it for a spin and find something that isn’t quite right, please add it as a Github Issue so I can be aware of it. :slight_smile:

Another Hugo version of this theme has already been ported to Hugo.

It has been listed on the website for a while. See:

Thank you for pointing it out. I should have looked in the themes site before starting. :slight_smile:

Would still have gone ahead with porting it because I really need to keep the content organised the way it is now. Also got to clean up and refactor a great deal of superfluous code.
