Hinode is a clean documentation and blog theme for Hugo, an open-source static site generator. Based on the Bootstrap 5 framework, the rendered site is fast, secure, and responsive. Hinode uses FlexSearch to enable full text search across your site. Finally, the theme supports Node Package Manager (npm) to automate the build process and to keep track of dependencies.

Detailed information about Hinode is available on the official website.


Hinode is a Hugo theme that uses modules to install and maintain various components. It can be installed using either Hugo or npm. If you would like to take advantage of automation, the npm approach is recommended. Refer to the Hinode template for installation instructions with npm.

The installation instructions in this readme install Hinode as a regular Hugo theme. Hinode requires the following software to be installed on your local machine.

Git is recommended, but is not a strict requirement.


Start a new Hinode project in three steps:

  1. Create a new site

    hugo new site my-hinode-site && cd my-hinode-site
  2. Initialize the module system

    hugo mod init example.com/my-hinode-site
    echo "[[module.imports]]\npath = 'github.com/gethinode/hinode'" >> hugo.toml
  3. Start a development server

    hugo server


See the official documentation on how to configure your site.


See the official documentation on how to contribute to the open-source development of Hinode.


Hinode is inspired by the following themes:

  • Blist - a clean and fast blog theme for your Hugo site using Tailwind CSS.
  • Doks - a Hugo theme for building secure, fast, and SEO-ready documentation websites, which you can easily update and customize.
