Aurora's theme options can also be customized in the configuration file.
# Dark Mode
The theme's default mode is set to adapt to the system's mode.
By changing the
dark_mode property in the configuration, you could specify the mode you want.
|Force default to be dark-mode|
|Force default to be light-mode|
|Adapt to system's mode|
For example, you could set the theme's default mode to be dark-mode by doing this:
theme: dark_mode: true
# Profile Avatar
You can also custom the shape of the profile avatar by changing the
profile_shape property in the configuration.
This property has the following options:
# Gradient Colour
A gradient is used across the theme, which consist of 3 main colours. These 3 colours can be configured in the theme option like so:
theme: # Gradient colors used for the theme # This consist of 3 gradient colors # each can be customized gradient: color_1: '#24c6dc' color_2: '#5433ff' color_3: '#ff0099'
# Feature Layout
Feature layout is a section where you display specially selected articles to your visitor on your home page.
This section can display
three feature articles at a time. The generation engine will choose the
three latest articles that use the
feature: true in the Front-Meta of your article markdown file.
By default, the theme will enable feature layout. You can also turn it off using the
feature property in your
_config.aurora.yml configuration file.
theme: dark_mode: true profile_shape: diamond feature: true
If the feature section will display
three feature articles, when I only applied
2 of my articles as feature articles, what will happen?
Good question!, if you applied less than
3 feature articles, the theme generator will pick up the latest articles to fill into the feature sections. It will also make sure it always has 3 feature articles for display!
Oh, I see. Wait!? You said: "Always have 3 feature articles.". What if I only have 2 articles in my blog. Then how are you going to get 3 feature articles?
No worries! The Aurora engine had taken care of that too. If the engine could not get enough articles to fill up to 3 feature articles, the "Feature Layout" will automatically change to
Pinned Layout instead.
# Pinned Layout
The "Pinned Layout" can be enabled by setting the
feature property to
false in the
_config.aurora.yml configuration file
theme: dark_mode: true profile_shape: diamond feature: false
false will force the theme to use
After changing the
feature you will need to re-run
hexo cl & hexo g to take effect.
