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



Some website projects require a solid starting point. With a great developer experience and a sound user experience. Sometimes you just don’t want to start from scratch. That’s why I created Hyas 💚


Making use of the power of Hugo. Following best practices for performance, SEO and security. Optimized for the Netlify platform. And always flexible, so you can easily make it your own.


The Hyas goodness:

  • Netlify-ready (functions, redirects, headers)
