Usage

You should follow the official documentation about installing a Zola theme.

I recommend adding the theme as a git submodule :

cd my-zola-website
git submodule add -b main git@github.com:tchartron/blow.git themes/blow

Edit the theme used in your config.toml file

# The site theme to use.
theme = "blow"

Then edit your config.toml file to override values from the theme :

[extra]
enable_search = true
enable_sidebar = true
enable_adsense = true
enable_multilingue = true
adsense_link = "https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js?client=myclientid"

[extra.lang]
items = [
    { lang = "en", links = [
        { base_url = "/", name = "English" },
        { base_url = "/fr", name = "French" },
    ] },
    { lang = "fr", links = [
        { base_url = "/", name = "Anglais" },
        { base_url = "/fr", name = "Français" },
    ] },
]

[extra.navbar]
items = [
    { lang = "en", links = [
        { url = "/", name = "Home" },
        { url = "/categories", name = "Categories" },
        { url = "/tags", name = "Tags" },
    ] },
    { lang = "fr", links = [
        { url = "/fr", name = "Accueil" },
        { url = "/fr/categories", name = "Categories" },
        { url = "/fr/tags", name = "Tags" },
    ] },
]
title = "title"

[extra.sidebar]
items = [
    { lang = "en", links = [
        { url = "/markdown", name = "Markdown" },
        { url = "/blog", name = "Blog" },
    ] },
    { lang = "fr", links = [
        { url = "/fr/markdown", name = "Markdown" },
        { url = "/fr/blog", name = "Blog" },
    ] },
]

# Index page
[extra.index]
title = "Main title"
image = "https://via.placeholder.com/200"

[extra.default_author]
name = "John Doe"
avatar = "https://via.placeholder.com/200"

[extra.social]
github = "https://github.com/johndoe"
gitlab = "https://gitlab.com/johndoe"
twitter = "https://twitter.com/johndoe"
linkedin = "https://www.linkedin.com/in/john-doe-b1234567/"
email = "john.doe@gmail.com"

[extra.favicon]
favicon = "/icons/favicon.ico"
favicon_16x16 = "/icons/favicon-16x16.png"
favicon_32x32 = "/icons/favicon-32x32.png"
apple_touch_icon = "/icons/apple-touch-icon.png"
android_chrome_512 = "/icons/android-chrome-512x512.png"
android_chrome_192 = "/icons/android-chrome-192x192.png"
manifest = "/icons/site.webmanifest"

You can now run zola serve and visit : http://127.0.0.1:1111/ to see your site

Syntax Highlighting

Blow makes use of Zola code highlighting feature.
It supports setting a different color scheme depending on the user selected theme (Dark / Light)
In order to use it you should select the color scheme you want to use for light and dark themes in the list provided here and edit your config.toml file like this example :

highlight_theme = "css"

highlight_themes_css = [
  { theme = "ayu-dark", filename = "syntax-dark.css" },
  { theme = "ayu-light", filename = "syntax-light.css" },
]

Features
