About Me

JuiceBar is a concise, elegan blog theme powered by Hugo.

This theme drew a lot of inspiration from PapermMod and LoveIt, and credit is due to their excellent work.

  • Some beautiful CSS animations
  • Easy-to-use and self-expanding table of contents
  • Automatically highlighting code
  • Custom script shortcode

How to start

You can install the theme either as a clone or submodule.

I recommend the latter. From the root of your Hugo site, type the following:

$ git submodule add https://github.com/hotjuicew/hugo-JuiceBar.git themes/JuiceBar

Now you can get updates to hugo-JuiceBar in the future by updating the submodule:

$ git submodule update --remote themes/JuiceBar

How to configure

The theme doesn’t require any advanced configuration. Just copy the following config file.


baseURL = 'http://example.org/' 
languageCode = 'en-us'
theme = "JuiceBar"
title = "your_blog_title"

author = "your_name"
description = "My site description"
authorImage = "/images/profile.jpg"
paginate = 5 
Title = "your_blog_title"
content = "I'm JuiceBar, nice to meet you(ˊ˘ˋ*)♡"
imageUrl = "/images/avatar.jpg"

# To add a new social icon
name = "Github"
url = "https://github.com/hotjuicew"
name = "telegram"
url = "https://t.me/Hotjuice"
name = "twitter"
url = "https://twitter.com/hotjuicee"
name = "email"
url = "mailto:hotjuicew@outlook.com"

category = "categories"
tag = "tags"

# To add a new navigation link
name = "About"
url = "/about"
name = "Blog"
url = "/post"
name = "Categories"
url = "/categories"

# Used for outputting the documentation (required).
home = ["HTML", "RSS", "JSON"]

Note: There are more options to configure. Take a look into the config.toml in exampleSite.

After installation, take a look at the exampleSite folder inside themes/hugo-JuiceBar.

To get started, copy the config.toml file inside exampleSite to the root of your Hugo site:

$ cp themes/hugo-JuiceBar/exampleSite/config.toml .

Now edit this file and add your own information. Note that some fields can be omitted.

I recommend you use the theme’s archetypes so now delete your site’s archetypes/default.md.

Finally, just run $ hugo new content/about.md to create your ‘About’ page, and $ hugo new content/post/title.md to create your first blog post.
