Modern Hugo Starter

Hyas is a Hugo starter helping you build modern websites that are secure, fast, and SEO-ready — by default.

Get started

Open-source MIT Licensed. GitHub v1.2.6

Security aware

Get A+ scores on Mozilla Observatory out of the box. Easily change the default Security Headers to suit your needs.

Fast by default

Get 100 scores on Google Lighthouse by default. Hyas removes unused css, prefetches links, and lazy loads images.


Use sensible defaults for structured data, open graph, and Twitter cards. Or easily change the SEO settings to your liking.

Development tools

Code with confidence. Check styles, scripts, and markdown for errors and fix automatically or manually.

Bootstrap framework

Build robust, flexible, and intuitive websites with Bootstrap. Or use any other front-end framework if you prefer.


Deploy to Netlify with sensible defaults. Easily use Netlify Functions, Netlify Redirects, and Netlify Headers.
