Juice is an intuitive, elegant, and responsive Zola theme for product sites.

  • Build for product sites
  • Simple and intuitive structure
  • Clean and elegant design
  • Responsive and mobile device compatible
  • Customize and extend friendly


First download this theme to your themes directory:

$ cd themes
$ git clone

or add as a submodule

$ git submodule add  themes/juice

and then enable it in your config.toml:

theme = "juice"



Juice is designed for product websites, hence we let hero part fills whole of screen. You can customize your hero by using hero block in the templates/index.html.

{% extends "juice/templates/index.html" %}
{% block hero %}
        Your cool hero html...
{% endblock hero %}


Every markdown file located in content directory will become a Page. There also will display as a navigate link on the top-right corner. You can change the frontmatter's weight value to sort the order (ascending order).

title = "Changelog"
description = "Changelog"
weight = 2

CSS variables

You can override theme variable by creating a file named _variables.html in your templates directory.

See the default value here


The same way as changing the hero block in the templates/index.html, you can change the favicon.

{% extends "juice/templates/index.html" %}
{% block favicon %}
    <link rel="icon" type="image/png" href="/favicon.ico">
{% endblock favicon %}


If you changed the --xy-font-family-variable in _variables.html, you have to load the mentioned fonts in the templates/index.html.

{% extends "juice/templates/index.html" %}
{% block fonts %}
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" crossorigin="anonymous">
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet">
{% endblock fonts %}


You can customize some builtin property in config.toml file:

juice_logo_name = "Juice"
juice_logo_path = "juice.svg"
juice_extra_menu = [
    { title = "Github", link = ""}
juice_exclude_menu = [
repository_url = ""


Juice have some builtin shortcodes available in templates/shortcodes directory.

  • issue(id) - A shortcode to render issue url, e.g. issue(id=1) would render to the link

The repository_url is required.


Please see the showcases page.
