Just earlier we showed you how to run the theme directly. Now we start to install the theme in an existing site step by step.

Step 1: Create a new zola site

zola init mysite

Step 2: Install The Tech Startup Theme

Download this theme to your themes directory:

cd mysite/themes
git clone

Or install as a submodule:

cd mysite
git init  # if your project is a git repository already, ignore this command
git submodule add themes/tech-startup-theme

Step 3: Configuration

Enable the theme in your config.toml in the site directory:

theme = "tech-startup-theme"

Or copy the config.toml.example from the theme directory to your project's root directory:

cp themes/tech-startup-theme/config.toml config.toml

Step 4: Add new content

You can copy the content from the theme directory to your project:

cp -r themes/tech-startup-theme/content .

You can modify or add new posts in the content/blog, content/docs or other content directories as needed.

Step 5: Run the project

Just run zola serve in the root path of the project:

zola serve

AdiDoks will start the Zola development web server accessible by default at Saved changes will live reload in the browser.


You can customize your configurations, templates and content for yourself. Look at the config.toml, theme.toml, content files and templates files in this repo for an idea.
