The Halo Theme Next is a blog theme that utilizes the Halo v2.7.0 API interface service. It is created using Next.js and cannot be directly installed on the Halo backend. The theme needs to be deployed separately and requires a server for hosting. The API interface may not be fully functional, leading to some features being difficult to implement. The deployment process involves initializing the necessary environment variables and deploying the project files. There are two recommended methods for deployment: using Next.js in a Node.js environment or using Docker. The theme offers several features, including smooth and seamless loading of single-page content, image optimization techniques, and three different placeholder options for rendering images.


  • Single-page navigation without refreshing
  • Optimized image loading with blur, lazyload, and responsive image techniques
  • Three options for placeholder images: CSS, SVG, and base64
  • Two ways to load images: directly from a remote location or through local redirection


To install the Halo Theme Next, follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that you have Node.js v18+ installed on your server.
  2. Package the project files and transfer them to the server.
  3. Unzip the project files on the server.
  4. Navigate to the project directory.
  5. Execute the following commands in order:
    • npm install (to install dependencies)
    • npm run build (to build the project)
    • npm run start (to start the project)

Alternatively, you can deploy the theme using Docker. Refer to the official documentation for instructions on how to deploy a Docker image.

Note: When deploying with Docker, if you encounter issues with using an internal IP address, it is recommended to use the actual domain name. Replace the "HALO_HOST" value in the ".env.production" file with the actual domain name.


The Halo Theme Next is a blog theme created using Next.js and the Halo v2.7.0 API interface. It offers features such as smooth single-page navigation, optimized image loading, and multiple placeholder options. The theme needs to be deployed separately and requires a server for hosting. Installation can be done either through a Node.js environment or using Docker. However, the API interface may have limitations and some features may be difficult to implement. The theme is still under development and additional features such as liking functionality and article search are planned to be added in the future.


Next.js is a React-based web framework that enables server-side rendering, static site generation, and other powerful features for building modern web applications.

Tailwind CSS is a utility-first CSS framework that provides pre-defined classes for building responsive and customizable user interfaces.


Blog websites feature posts written by one or more authors, organized by categories and tags, with a section for comments and archives sorted by date or topic. Additional features may include search bar, social media sharing, subscription or RSS feed, about and contact pages, and visual content.


ESLint is a linter for JavaScript that analyzes code to detect and report on potential problems and errors, as well as enforce consistent code style and best practices, helping developers to write cleaner, more maintainable code.


PostCSS is a popular open-source tool that enables web developers to transform CSS styles with JavaScript plugins. It allows for efficient processing of CSS styles, from applying vendor prefixes to improving browser compatibility, ultimately resulting in cleaner, faster, and more maintainable code.


TypeScript is a superset of JavaScript, providing optional static typing, classes, interfaces, and other features that help developers write more maintainable and scalable code. TypeScript's static typing system can catch errors at compile-time, making it easier to build and maintain large applications.
