I’ve tried looking through the Hugo themes for one that implements a Tufte-like side-note. The best I’ve found is hugo-tufte leveraging tufte-css, which I’ve made into a dark theme hugo-tufte-dark for my own site. However, there are a few problems I’m currently hacking on. Specifically:
- Mobile compatibility allowing for optional reveal of side-notes and linky foot-notes, as shown in this blog.
- Centering figures better, given they currently are hugging the left-margin.
- Various style fixes, such as bulleted lists margins and how to add side-notes to bulleted lists, without them immigrating to another plane of existence.
In the interest of not duplicating work and creating a document for other looking to accomplish the same thing, I thought I would post here and log my own investigations.
