Lightbi - Hugo Theme

Lightbi web and mobile home page

Lightbi is a minimal and clean blog theme for Hugo, which is forked from Beautiful Hugo.

When I created my Malayalam blog last year in Hugo, I searched for so many themes with the simple card design. But I couldn’t able to find something that matches the design in my mind. So I thought I can take a good theme and modify it the way I want. After that, I found Beautiful Hugo and forked that to develop Lightbi.

This is a simple personal blog I made with Hugo. It has a blog homepage, content page, an about page, and a 404 page. If you want to learn how to make your own Hugo blog, you can read my blog post where I show you the steps.
