This is not a standalone theme. It is a Hugo theme component providing a shortcode: loremipsum to generate greek text paragraphs.

It starts off with a standard "Lorem ipsum …" text, then randomises the sentence order on each subsequent paragraph.


  1. Add the hugo-loremipsum as a submodule to be able to get upstream changes later git submodule add themes/hugo-loremipsum
  2. Add hugo-loremipsum as the left-most element of the theme list variable in your site's or theme's configuration file config.yaml or config.toml. Example, with config.yaml:
    theme: ["hugo-loremipsum", "my-theme"]
    or, with config.toml,
    theme = ["hugo-loremipsum", "my-theme"]
  3. In your site, use the shortcode, e.g. to generate 3 paragraphs of Lorem ipsum greek text :
    {{< loremipsum 3 >}}
    or simply, for just one paragraph
    {{< loremipsum >}}
