I tried some themes such as PaperMod , Ananke , mini , Anubis and Whisper . Every theme lack in some aspect, so I decided to create a new theme for my own use case.

Name of the theme ๐Ÿ”—

I named the theme KMT which is the name of Egypt - my home - in the ancient egyptian language. I develop the theme for Hugo as open source on GitHub , GitLab and Codeberg .
