Lagom is a Swedish word with no direct English equivalent, meaning "just the right amount". Orange is an English word which describes the colour between red and yellow, named after the colour of the ripe orange fruit.
lagom-orange, is a Jekyll blog theme with just the right amount of style. This theme is based on lagom by Matt Swanson and is lovingly extracted from both mdswanson.com and james12802.co.uk for your enjoyment!
- Responsive, based on Skeleton
- Font Awesome for icons
- Open Sans from Google web fonts
- Built-in Atom RSS feed
See it in action!
- Install Jekyll:
gem install jekyll
- Fork this repository
- Clone it:
git clone https://github.com/YOUR-USER/lagom-orange
- Run the jekyll server:
Installation on Windows is quite a bit tougher, so I have writen a whole post, just on installation instructions.
Either way, you should now have a server up and running locally at http://localhost:4000.
Next you'll want to change a few things. Most of them can be changed directly in _config.yml. That's where you can add your social links, change the accent color and other cool stuff like that.
There's a few other things you'll want to change, too:
- CNAME: If you're using this on GitHub Pages with a custom domain name,
you'll want to change this to be the domain you're going to use. All that should
be in here is a domain name on the first line and nothing else (like:
- favicon.png: This is the icon in your browser's address bar. You should change it to whatever you'd like.
- logo.png: A square-ish image that appears in the upper-left corner
You should deploy with GitHub Pages - it's just easier.
All you should have to do is rename your repository on GitHub to be
username.github.io. Since everything is on the
gh-pages branch, you
should be able to see your new site at http://username.github.io.
MIT with no added caveats, so feel free to use this on your site without linking back to me or Matt Swanson and without using a disclaimer or anything silly like that. (But if you like the theme, it never hurts to say where you got it! ;p)
