Theme Installation

New to Hugo?

If you are new to Hugo, you should go through an introductory phase prior to installing the theme. Before creating the project, we recommend you explore the following links:

  1. First of all, check our Hugo Guide. (Required)
  2. You can learn more about Hugo from the Official Hugo Documentation.
  3. For more clarification, you can check the Video Tutorials

You may skip this step and move to the next page if you don’t wish to maintain Hugo locally.

Create A New Project

  1. Launch the Terminal and go to the specific location where you prefer to run your site.

    project-directory

  2. Use the following command to create a new site. It will add a folder with your given PROJECT NAME.

    hugo new site my-project
    

    new-project

Setup Your Project With Kross

  1. Unzip the downloaded file, and you will get Kross in the themes folder.

    unzip

  2. Copy the themes/kross-hugo into the my-project/themes folder so that you end up with a folder structure like my-project/themes/kross-hugo/

    copy-to-themes

  3. Copy all files from the exampleSite folder into the project directory ( my-project/ ). It will overwrites existing files and folders. You can delete the exampleSite folder afterward.

    copy-examplesite

  4. Navigate to the project directory (In this example, its my-project )

    cd my-project
    

    project-dir

  5. Run Hugo to serve your project.

    hugo server
    

    hugo-serve

  6. Now, you get a generated URL and open it in your browser. The default URL looks like this localhost:1313.

If your website doesn’t serve on your localhost, then check the theme name is correct in config.toml file. Then run hugo server command again.
