Hydejack’s cover page on a variety of screen sizes.

Hydejack is a boutique Jekyll theme for hackers, nerds, and academics, with a focus on personal sites that are meant to impress.

It includes a blog that is suitable for both prose and technical documentation, a portfolio to showcase your projects, and a resume template that looks amazing on the web and in print.

Your complete presence on the web — A blog, portfolio, and resume.

A Personal Site That Won’t Disappear

Hydejack is 100% built on Open Source software, and is Open Source itself, save for parts of the PRO version. The PRO version is a one-time payment that gives you the right to use it forever.

Hydejack is all static sites. HTML. All you need is a web server — any web server — to have a professional web presence that lasts a lifetime.

A Free Blogging Theme

Hydejack started out as a free blogging theme for Jekyll — and continues to be so.

An Impressive Portfolio

A portfolio that’s guaranteed to be impressive — no matter what you put into it.

A Printable Resume

Get a resume that’s consistent across the board — whether it’s on the web, mobile, print, or PDF.

Just Markdown

Write all content with Markdown. Hydejack gives you additional CSS classes to stylize your content, without losing compatibility with other Jekyll themes.

Just Markup

Hydejack boasts a plethora of modern JavaScript, but make no mistake: It’s still a plain old web page at its core. It works without JavaScript and you can even view it in a text-based browser like w3m:

Syntax Highlighting

Hydejack features syntax highlighting, powered by Rouge.

<!-- file: `_includes/my-body.html` -->
<script type="module">
  document.querySelector("hy-push-state").addEventListener("hy-push-state-load", () => {
    const supportsCodeHighlights = false; // TBD!!

Code blocks can have a filename and a caption.

Beautiful Math

They say math is beautiful — and with Hydejack’s math support it’s guaranteed to also look beautiful: \[\begin{aligned} \phi(x,y) &= \phi \left(\sum_{i=1}^n x_ie_i, \sum_{j=1}^n y_je_j \right) \\[2em] &= \sum_{i=1}^n \sum_{j=1}^n x_i y_j \phi(e_i, e_j) \\[2em] &= (x_1, \ldots, x_n) \left(\begin{array}{ccc} \phi(e_1, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_1, e_n) \\ \vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\ \phi(e_n, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_n, e_n) \end{array}\right) \left(\begin{array}{c} y_1 \\ \vdots \\ y_n \end{array}\right) \end{aligned}\]

Hydejack uses KaTeX to efficiently render math.
