There are multiple ways to install and set up Linkhub. Let's explore each of them.

Use GitHub Template (Fastest Way)

If you need the quickest way to set this up or if you're a complete beginner to Jekyll, using the GitHub template is the easiest option. You can also fork the repo.

  1. Visit Linkhub theme repository.
  2. Click the Use this template button.
  3. Select Create a new repository.
  4. Give it a name and click Create repository.
  5. Edit the _config.yml and _data files for customization. Check the Configuration guide for details.
  6. Go to Settings > Pages. Under Build and deployment, select GitHub Actions as the source.
  7. If you have a custom domain, you can enter it. Otherwise, you can view the published website at https://<username> once the building is complete!

Install as GitHub Remote Theme

Go to your site's _config.yml and replace theme: with remote_theme: digitalmalayali/linkhub-jekyll-theme.

Install as Ruby Gem

Add this line to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "linkhub-jekyll-theme"

And add this line to your Jekyll site's _config.yml:

theme: linkhub-jekyll-theme

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install linkhub-jekyll-theme


Linkhub is super-easy to customize! There is only one layout and that is default.html. Also, there are no _posts.

Adding Site Info

Edit the _config.yml file to specify your website's name, page title, description, Google Analytics, and whether to show or hide the verified badge. This information will also be used for meta tags. For the logo, make sure to use an image with a 1:1 aspect ratio.

# Exclude

Adding Icons

Icons are powered by the free and open-source icon framework Iconify, offering a selection of over 150,000 icons. Visit the Iconify icon sets website to search for your preferred icon. Once you find your desired icon, copy its name and use it in the respective fields.

You can use custom icons for Links.

Edit the social.yml file in the _data folder to add your social media profiles, along with your preferred icons and colors.


- name: facebook
  icon: ri:facebook-fill
  color: '#1877F2'

- name: instagram
  icon: ri:instagram-fill
  color: '#E4405F'

Like Later's link-in-bio feature, you can include external links to your Instagram, TikTok, and other posts by adding the name of social media, the link and image URL/path to bio.yml in the _data folder. You can either upload thumbnails of your Instagram, TikTok and YouTube posts to an image hosting service or create an images folder in assets and place them there. By default, the images will be displayed with a 1:1 aspect ratio in a 3-column grid. You can use the ratio variable for vertical images with a 9:16 aspect ratio. Make sure to add the link you'd like to appear first to the top.


- name: Instagram
    - url:
      image: # You can use paths to images in the assets folder, e.g., assets/images/insta.jpg.
    - url:

- name: YouTube
  ratio: vertical # For vertical 9:16 aspect ratio. Ideal for video thumbnails, such as those used on Instagram Reels, YouTube Shorts and TikTok. To use the default 1:1 aspect ratio (square), remove this variable.
    - url:

If you'd like to remove Instagram/TikTok/YouTube link-in-bio altogether, remove or comment out the following line in default.html layout:

{% include bio.html %}

Edit the links.yml file in the _data folder to add link categories, links, icons, and tags. Refer to the provided examples and the demo for a better understanding. tag and icon variables are optional.


- category: Blogs

As shown in the example above, you can use the custom-icon variable to insert custom SVG icons. Be sure to paste the entire SVG markup. You can use SVGOMG to optimize the SVG.

Remove Dark/Light Mode Switch

To remove the dark/light mode switch, edit the default.html layout file and remove or comment out the following line:

{% include theme-switch.html %}

Please note that this will not remove the functionality that detects and sets the dark/light mode based on the user's system preference.
