There are no hard breaking changes between 5.1.x and 6.0.x versions. It's change major version to 6 because:
- Main repositorie was rebased from iissnan's profile to theme-next organization.
- Most libraries under the
next/source/libdirectory was moved out to external repositories under NexT organization.
- 3rd-party plugin
hexo-wordcountwas replaced by
hexo-symbols-count-timeno have any external nodejs dependencies, no have language filter which causes better performance on speed at site generation.
So, NexT suggest to update from version 5 to version 6 in this way:
- You don't touch old
nextdir and just do some copies of NexT files:
next.yml(if you used data-files).
1.2. Custom CSS styles what placed in
1.3. Custom layout styles what placed in
1.4. Any another possible custom additions which can be finded by compare tools between repositories.
- Clone new v6.x repositorie to any another directory instead of
next. For example, in
git clone https://github.com/theme-next/hexo-theme-next themes/next-reloaded. So, you don't touch your old NexT 5.1.x directory and can work with new
- Go to Hexo main config and set theme parameter:
theme: next-reloaded. So, your
next-reloadeddirectory must loading with your generation. If you may see any bugs or you simply not like this version, in anytime you can switch for 5.1.x version back.
