The Cyanine Theme

Cyanine is a modern multipurpose theme for text driven websites and the new standard theme for typemill. Create documentations, handbooks, manuals, and more.

The theme is fully responsive and very lightweight with no javascript and a minimal set of CSS. Like most themes from Typemill it gets 100 points from the Page Speed Insights.


The theme supports a lot of new features, among them:

  • Configure brand colors for your website.
  • Choose between fonts (separated into base font, headline font and navigation font).
  • Configure a three column footer.
  • Activate an optional landingpage.

The Landingpage

The landing page has several segments, that you can activate and configure:

  • Intro segment (that shows the content of the homepage and an optional button).
  • Info segment (with pure markdown).
  • Feature segment (with two boxes).
  • Contrast segment (with inverted colors with title, text and button).
  • Navigation segment (choose the depth of the navigation).
  • News segment (choose the folder, three latest items will be listed).

General Improvements

Cyanine has a lot of improvements compared to the old standard theme:

  • The size is reduced from 600kb to 60kb.
  • It uses the tachyons css library which is much easier to maintain.
  • No icons.
  • No JavaScript.
  • Like all themes it is super fast.
