JavaScripten (v6)

Hydejack v6 adds a layer of JavaScript, effectively turning the whole site into a single page app.

Hydejack has always featured a JavaScript-heavy sidebar, but other than that, JS has been used sparingly. This changes with this release, which adds a ton of (optional) code that changes the feel of the theme dramatically.

The Fast One (v5)

Hydejack v5 dramatically increases page load speed which matters to Google and visitors with slow connections alike.

This major release increases page load speed dramatically. The page now scores roughly 90/100 on Google’s PageSpeed Insights (up from ~50) and has a high score on similar tools.

Social Media Impocalypse (v4)

Hydejack v4 adds a lot of social media icons and introduces a new default layout. It also breaks things, hence a new major release number.

Breaking

  • Structure of _config.yml has changed
    • Social media usernames are now located under author: social: <platform>: <username>.
    • disqus is now a top-level entry (moved from author).
    • Now has font, font_accent and google_fonts fields that are mandatory.
  • Now defaults to the blog layout, old style is available via blog-by-tag layout, see archive.html.

Introducing Hydejack (v3)

Hydejack is a pretentious two-column Jekyll theme, stolen by @qwtel from Hyde. You could say it was.. hydejacked.

Features

Unlike Hyde, it’s very opinionated about how you are going to use it.

Features include:

  • Touch-enabled sidebar / drawer for mobile, including fallback when JS is disabled.
  • Github Pages compatible tag support based on this post.
  • Customizable link color and sidebar image, per-site, per-tag and per-post.
  • Optional author section at the bottom of each post.
  • Optional comment section powered by Disqus.
  • Layout for posts grouped by year
  • Wide array of social media icons on sidebar.
  • Math blocks via KaTeX.

Introducing Hyde

Hyde is a brazen two-column Jekyll theme that pairs a prominent sidebar with uncomplicated content.
