Version 0.7.0 has been released! See the release announcement for more information.

Also, if you like BluestNight, please consider supporting its development.

If PygmentsUseClasses is set to true in the site’s configuration file, BluestNight will detect how dark the alt_background color is and apply a default syntax theme as necessary.

PygmentsUseClasses = true
[params]
    title = "My Site"
PygmentsUseClasses: true
params:
    title: My Site
{
    "PygmentsUseClasses": true,
    "params": {
        "title": "My Site"
    }
}

If you want to override these defaults, you have two options:

  1. Disable PygmentsUseClasses by commenting it out or setting it to false and set PygmentsStyle to the theme you want to use (Hugo documentation)

PygmentsUseClasses = false
PygmentsStyle = "colorful"
[params]
    title = "My Site"
PygmentsUseClasses: false
PygmentsStyle: colorful
params:
    title: My Site
{
    "PygmentsUseClasses": false,
    "PygmentsStyle": "colorful",
    "params": {
        "title": "My Site"
    }
}

  1. Create the files dark.css and dark.min.css (for dark backgrounds) and light.css light.min.css (for light backgrounds) under static/css/ in your site’s root directory by following the instructions here.
