First install the theme into the themes directory with one of these options:

# If you work with git: 
git submodule add themes/dose
# or just do a download:
git clone themes/dose

and then enable it in your config.toml:

theme = "dose"

You can enable the following taxonomies:

taxonomies = [
    { name = "tags", feed = true },

And the theme uses the following extras:

social_media = [
    { name = "GitHub", url = "" },
    { name = "Twitter", url = "" },
    { name = "Mastodon", url = "", rel = "me" }
default_theme = "dark" # or "light"

The description of yourself with your image, you can modify by using a template. Just create a new file myblog/templates/parts/me.html:

<img src="" height="50px" width="50px">
<p>Hi, this is me. I write about microcontrollers, programming and cloud software. ...</p>

If you want to have all pages sorted by their date, please create myblog/content/

sort_by = "date"



I created this theme mainly for my personal website. You are free to use it or modify it. It is inspired by the no-style-please jekyll theme.


This theme uses no special font, just the browsers default monospace font. Yes, this can mean that the website could be rendered differently, but users can freely choose their webfont.


This theme supports dark and light mode. Currently this will be only switched based on the users preffered system theme. But a manual switch will follow in the future in the footer (see the todo).



The JavaScript has been moved into the page itself to allow minification. Together this results in the following sizes for the index.html:

Which results in a total loading size of 3kB + 3kB + 17kB + 2kB = 25kB.

Syntax Highlighting

As I didn't want to invest any time in creating an own syntax color schema for this theme, I suggest to use visual-studio-dark, which is the same one used in the demo page.


You can create your own version of this theme, by simply changing the sass variables in sass/style.scss to match your taste.

$base-background: white;
