Why The Hugo Theme is Named Kmt?

· 181 words · 1 minute read

I named my Hugo theme kmt after the name of my country. As you can read on Wikipedia page about Egypt .

The ancient Egyptian name of the country was (𓆎 𓅓 𓏏𓊖) km.t, which means black land, likely referring to the fertile black soils of the Nile flood plains, distinct from the deshret (⟨dšṛt⟩), or “red land” of the desert. This name is commonly vocalised as Kemet, but was probably pronounced kuːmat in ancient Egyptian. The name is realised as K(h)ēmə (Bohairic Coptic: ⲭⲏⲙⲓ, Sahidic Coptic: ⲕⲏⲙⲉ) in the Coptic stage of the Egyptian language, and appeared in early Greek as Χημία (Khēmía). Another name was ⟨tꜣ-mry⟩ “land of the riverbank”. The names of Upper and Lower Egypt were Ta-Sheme’aw (⟨tꜣ-šmꜥw⟩) “sedgeland” and Ta-Mehew (⟨tꜣ mḥw⟩) “northland”, respectively.

So, Egypt is Kemet or Kemie. I used the name without the vowels “kmt”.

Kmt theme for Hugo websites is opensource and the source code is available on Github .

I originally created kmt theme for my own website and tech blog ( AbanoubHanna.com ) on which you are reading this post.
