Jekyll and Github Pages

2012 / 02 / 19 - San Luis Obispo, CA

This blog was a piece of cake to setup, thanks to Github and Tom’s Jekyll.

Github allows each user account and each public git repository to have it’s own static site using Github Pages. Secondly, Jekyll processes static (though templated) html files in a way that makes it easy to maintain a blog or other collection of similarly formatted pages.

How To

  1. Fork this repository
  2. Rename it to yourusername.github.com or create a new branch called gh-pages
  3. Delete content in _posts/
  4. Change all references in atom.xml to your own
  5. Change all references in index.html to your own
  6. Push to github
  7. Restyle as you wish by editing the css files.
