Hello Amigo

A minimalistic theme for hugo.

This theme is a HARD fork of Hello Friend NG made by rhazdon.

Why fork?

Wanted to change up, colors, icons, fonts and a bit more.


  • Theming: dark/light mode, depending on your preferences (dark is default, but you can change it)
  • Great reading experience thanks to Alef font, made by Hagilda
  • Nice code highlighting thanks to PrismJS
  • An easy way to modify the theme with Hugo tooling
  • Fully responsive
  • Support for social

Built-in shortcodes

  • image (prop required: src; props optional: alt, position (left is default | center | right), style)
    • eg: {{< image src="/img/hello.png" alt="Hello Friend" position="center" style="border-radius: 8px;" >}}
  • figure (same as image, plus few optional props: caption, captionPosition (left | center is default | right), captionStyle
    • eg: {{< figure src="/img/hello.png" alt="Hello Friend" position="center" style="border-radius: 8px;" caption="Hello Friend!" captionPosition="right" captionStyle="color: red;" >}}

Code highlighting

By default the theme is using PrismJS to color your code syntax. All you need to do is to wrap you code like this:

  // your code here

Supported languages: https://prismjs.com/#languages-list

How to start

You can download the theme manually by going to https://github.com/rhazdon/hugo-theme-hello-friend-ng.git and pasting it to themes/hello-amigo in your root directory.

You can also clone it directly to your Hugo folder:

$ git clone https://github.com/rhazdon/hugo-theme-hello-friend-ng.git themes/hello-friend-ng

If you don't want to make any radical changes, it's the best option, because you can get new updates when they are available. To do so, include it as a git submodule:

$ git submodule add https://github.com/rhazdon/hugo-theme-hello-friend-ng.git themes/hello-friend-ng


Use RealFaviconGenerator to generate these files, put them into your site's static folder:

  • android-chrome-192x192.png
  • android-chrome-512x512.png
  • apple-touch-icon.png
  • favicon-16x16.png
  • favicon-32x32.png
  • favicon.ico
  • mstile-150x150.png
  • safari-pinned-tab.svg
  • site.webmanifest

How to configure

The theme doesn't require any advanced configuration. Just copy:

baseurl = "/"
languageCode = "en-us"
theme = "hello-amigo"

  dateform        = "Jan 2, 2006"
  dateformShort   = "Jan 2"
  dateformNum     = "2006-01-02"
  dateformNumTime = "2006-01-02 15:04 -0700"

  # Metadata mostly used in document's head
  description = "Homepage and blog by Djordje Atlialp"
  keywords = "homepage, blog, science, informatics, development, programming"
  images = [""]

  # Directory name of your blog content (default is `content/posts`)
  contentTypeName = "posts"
  # Default theme "light" or "dark"
  defaultTheme = "dark"

    title = "Hello Amigo"
    subtitle = "A simple theme for Hugo"
    keywords = ""
    copyright = ""
    readOtherPosts = "Read other posts"

      logoText = "hello friend ng"
      logoHomeLink = "/"
    # or
    # path = "/img/your-example-logo.svg"
    # alt = "Your example logo alt text"

	# You can create a language based menu
        identifier = "about"
        name = "About"
        url = "/about"
        identifier = "showcase"
        name = "Showcase"
        url = "/showcase"

# And you can even create generic menu
    identifier = "about"
    name       = "About"
    url        = "/about"
    identifier = "blog"
    name       = "Blog"
    url        = "/posts"

How to run your site

From your Hugo root directory run:

$ hugo server -t hello-friend-ng

and go to localhost:1313 in your browser. From now on all the changes you make will go live, so you don't need to refresh your browser every single time.

How to edit the theme

If you really want to edit the theme, you need to install Node dependencies. To do this, go to the theme directory (from your Hugo root directory):

$ cd themes/hello-friend-ng

and then run:

$ npm install
