After Dark ships with an 169B optimized[^1] SVG favicon embedded into every page:

{{< highlight html >}} {{< include “themes/after-dark/layouts/partials/head/favicon.html” >}} {{< /highlight >}}

The favicon is a black-colored oblique triangle in the shape of a tepee as shown[^2] on the Online Help Overview. The center of the triangle uses negative space to give the illusion of a second equilateral triangle in the shape of a pyramid, or open fire, contained within.

The color of the icon can be modified by changing the fill attribute:

{{< hackcss-grid class=“-around” >}} {{< hackcss-cell class=“-2of12” >}}

Adjust it from favicon.html in the site layouts/partials/head directory:

├── content
├── layouts
│   └── partials
│       └── head
│           └── favicon.html
├── static

If the file doesn’t exist yet, copy it from the theme default:

$ mkdir -p layouts/partials/head
$ cp themes/after-dark/layouts/partials/head/favicon.html layouts/partials/head

If optimizing for platform experiences do so from within favicon.html:

{{< highlight go-html-template “linenos=inline” >}} {{< /highlight >}}

See {{< external href=“https://github.com/h5bp/html5-boilerplate/blob/master/dist/doc/extend.md#web-apps” text=“H5BP Extend” />}} for platform-specific requirements and {{< external href=“https://gohugo.io/documentation/” text=“Hugo Documentation” />}} for help with templating functions and variables.
