A minimal, monospaced blogging theme for Hugo that respects your privacy and is easy on your bandwidth.

A real-life example can be found at https://morph.sh.

smol is based on Blank created by Vimux.



  • No JavaScript
  • No Google spyware or tracking of any kind
  • No other external dependencies, embedded fonts or comment sections
  • Dark mode support (depending on your OS's setting)


In your Hugo site themes directory, run:

git clone https://github.com/colorchestra/smol

Next, open config.toml in the base of the Hugo site and ensure the theme option is set to smol.

theme = "smol"

Lastly, add the following lines to your config.toml to make use of all the menu entries in the header and footer sections if you need them.

# Header
        identifier = "posts"
        name = "Posts"
        url = "/posts/"
        weight = 1 

        identifier = "categories"
        name = "Categories"
        url = "/categories/"
        weight = 2 

        identifier = "tags"
        name = "Tags"
        url = "/tags/"
        weight = 3

# Footer
        name = "Github"
        url = "https://github.com/example"
        weight = 1 

        name = "Mastodon"
        url = "https://example.com/@user"
        weight = 2 

        name = "Imprint"
        url = "/imprint"
        weight = 3
