Cayman is a clean, Responsive theme for Hugo, ported from the original Jekyll Cayman Theme.

Minimum Hugo version

Hugo version 0.54.0 or higher is required. View the Hugo releases and download the binary for your OS.

Note: The extended version of Hugo is only required if you wish to edit style-related params in your config file. This is because this theme uses Hugo Pipes and SCSS.
