To install, run nikola theme -i hybrid

The Hybrid theme is based on the Hyde theme which is a port of the Hyde theme by mdo combined with features from the Zen theme family:

  • ForkAwesome font icons are supported
  • fancydates JS plugin is used
  • navigation links can be text only or icon only or combined
  • turn blog title and description in navigation bar on/off
  • Hyde color schemes are supported

Specify preferences via THEME_CONFIG variable in the config:

        DEFAULT_LANG: {
            "hyde_subtheme": "theme-base-08",
            "sidebar_title": False,
            "navigation": "icon",

Color schemes

  • use predefined color scheme by replacing 08 with one of 09, 0a, 0b, 0c, 0d, 0e, 0f
  • custom color scheme: edit subtheme name to "theme-custom" and define your colors in assets/css/hybrid.css (background-color and color attribute)
  • see conf.py.sample for details

Title in sidebar

  • set "sidebar_title" to False for the Zen look
  • set "sidebar_title" to True to show blog title and description

Navigation links

  • set "navigation" to "icon" for the Zen experience
  • set "navigation" to "text" for the Hyde experience
  • do not set variable for Hybrid view

(Note: The .sidebar class was renamed to .hsidebar to avoid conflicts with reST.)
