A clean, professional Hugo theme

Poison is a clean, professional Hugo theme designed to captivate your readers.

It’s also tiny and privacy conscious with no external dependencies (unless you opt to include comments). No JavaScript frameworks, icon packs, or Google fonts. No ads or trackers polluting your console window.

We kept things simple. A little vanilla JavaScript, a dash of CSS, and the power of Hugo.

All the static assets for the site (JS files, CSS, and fonts) are kept in the theme’s /assets/ directory. That way you know exactly what’s going on your site.
