Hi :)

My name is Shreya.

This is probably going to be my personal site. We’ll see.


  • Make a portfolio-over-the-years.
  • Update regularly with what I’ve been working on.


This site is made using Hugo and its PaperMod theme! Legend goes that I looked at 3b1b’s Manim documentation and loved its design. Obviously I have to start clicking on things to find more about this piece of code, so I came across Pradyun’s website, and loved this design too. At this point I was kind of mind blown that there were really themes I thought were sleek and actually usable, so I zoomed over to Hugo, and a day later, here we are.

Probably my favorite thing is that there’s an easy way to write math in here! Although it’s not as versatile as Coffee and Sleep–you still need to use the terminal and write in files, and it’s static, so you have to deploy new changes to master–I still really like it.

At first I was going to just use some template right out of the box, but that didn’t really work out so well. I tried out a few themes, gave up on the ones that weren’t PaperMod, and then figured I needed things to change about PaperMod too. It took a while to figure it out, but I did edit the search template to include links to tag/category search, the post pages to actually show the category (why isn’t that default?), and the footer as well. I really did try to do something cool with the footer, but it didn’t animate well, so here we are. Again, it took me a while to find how to edit the template in the first place, so I guess my chances were low. I think it was okay to just edit the submodule. I… don’t know though… so let’s hope PaperMod doesn’t update.

Actually, I’m getting a bit scared. I’m going to put the code here.

Half an hour later

I looked into the submodule issue. It was, obviously, an issue. So much for wishful thinking. But I just changed it, so it’s not a submodule anymore, and I can edit however I like, but that also means I won’t get updates. That’s fine though–I can just add the actual submodule elsewhere, maybe?

I’ll still put the code down there, though. For the curious, I guess.

See you around,
