Theme showcase gallery

Today we did the last finishing touches of the theme showcase gallery and also added it to the quick start setup wizard so it will be extra easy to have a static website created with Appernetic.

Aggregate meta information from theme designers

We automatically aggregate and build a JSON file each week that contains the extracted meta information from each of the 86 themes.

I also check if each theme has an exampleSite folder and a config.toml file and if they have we give them a star in the frontend.

Everything is served as a JSON file from a REST API endpoint, then we have Angular mangling the arrays and objects to make them look intelligible to us humans.

If you are not the most patient type of person, avoid themes that have no star, they need some extra attention to get your website working.

Included in each theme listing is:

  • List item
  • Thumbnail image
  • Theme name
  • Description
  • Author (with website URL)
  • Repository link
  • Minimum Hugo version (which the theme works with).
  • Licence
  • Features/Tags (blue and green labels)

Theme gallery item in the theme showcase gallery

With the aggregated meta information and the themes gallery ready it was now also possible to include the one-click theme install feature in the quick start wizard. This will make it much easier to get started.

Click on the dashboard link up to the right and see for yourself and build a static website fast!
