Lightbi - Hugo Theme


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.

It’s a minimal personal blog that features a blog homepage, content page, an about page, and a 404 page which is created for Hugo. If you are new to Hugo, check my blog post about how to build a Hugo blog website from scratch.
