Configuration

Quartz is designed to be extremely configurable. You can find the bulk of the configuration scattered throughout the repository depending on how in-depth you’d like to get.

The majority of configuration can be be found under data/config.yaml. An annotated example configuration is shown below.

Styling

Want to go even more in-depth? You can add custom CSS styling and change existing colours through editing assets/custom.scss. If you’d like to target specific parts of the site, you can add ids and classes to the HTML partials in /layouts/partials.

Partials

Partials are what dictate what actually gets rendered to the page. Want to change how pages are styled and structured? You can edit the appropriate layout in /layouts.

For example, the structure of the home page can be edited through /layouts/index.html. To customize the footer, you can edit /layouts/partials/footer.html

More info about partials on Hugo’s website.
