Via Starter Kit
When using the Starter Kit, upgrading Hydejack is as simple as setting the
remote_theme key in

Upgrading the the gem-based theme is as easy as running
bundle update jekyll-theme-hydejack
Upgrading via zip is a bit of a dark art, specially if you’ve made changes to any source files, and the prime reason why I suggest using the gem-based version of the theme.
Generally, you’ll want to copy these files and folders:
and merge them with your existing folder. However, you’ll also want to check out
_config.yml for any changes
and read latest entries to the CHANGELOG.
The latest version sits on the
master branch of qwtel/hydejack.
To apply them to your repository run
$ git remote add hydejack firstname.lastname@example.org:qwtel/hydejack.git $ git pull hydejack master
Buyers of the PRO version will find the files necessary for an upgrade in the
upgrade folder of the downloaded zip archive.
The archive also contains
.patch files, that you can apply to your repository via git-apply.
Using this method, git will generate merge conflicts when changes in the patch conflict with any of your changes.
