SketchSpace

A space for your comics on the web.

This site is built on Garrett Boatman's blank Jekyll template and Lài Xìntāo's Jekyll stylesheet.

Demonstration

Setup

  1. Personalize the _config.yml file in your installation directory.
  2. Begin uploading your posts to the _posts directory of your installation.

This is assuming that you have hosting in place. You can self-host Jekyll and then supply this repository to the Jekyll software on your server, or you can host on GitHub Pages.

Posting comics

All posts on SketchSpace must follow the following format:


---
title: Comic Title
date: YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS +/-HH:MM
comic: http://example.com/comics/example-comic.jpg
---

{% include comic.html %}

Note: The + or - at the end of the date is your timezone's UTC offset. Find it here in the 'UTC offset' tab of the list.

Save your post as a .markdown file, with the filename containing just ANSI characters with no spaces into the _posts directory of your installation. If you need spaces, replace them with dashes or underscores. The name must begin with the date in the following format:

YYYY-MM-DD

Save your comics themselves as images in the comics directory of your installation. These are what go into your .markdown files.

By giving a post a date in the future, you can keep it unpublished until that date arrives, automatically publishing it. This way you can schedule future posts.

Known Issues

  • Due to technical limitations, the 'Random comic' button cannot send you to the first comic.
  • Jekyll seems to have issues with compiling a post if the comic path is a URN instead of a URL, so give absolute paths instead of relative ones.
