The Markdown Console theme

Markdown Console is a Jekyll theme, made with GitHub Pages in mind. You can preview the theme to see what it looks like, or even use it today.

Usage

Default Layout

The default layout includes a header and footer. See an example

Minimal Layout

The minimal layout is just the content. See an example

Customizing

Configuration variables

Markdown Console will respect the following variables, if set in your site's _config.yml:

title: [The title of your site]
description: [A short description of your site's purpose]

Additionally, you may choose to set the following optional variables:

google_analytics: [Your Google Analytics tracking ID]

Stylesheet

If you'd like to add your own custom styles:

  1. Create a file called /assets/css/style.scss in your site
  2. Add the following content to the top of the file, exactly as shown:
    ---
    ---
    
    @import "{{ site.theme }}";
  3. Add any custom CSS (or Sass, including imports) you'd like immediately after the @import line

Layouts

If you'd like to change the theme's HTML layout:

  1. Copy the original template from the theme's repository
    (Pro-tip: click "raw" to make copying easier)
  2. Create a file called /_layouts/default.html in your site
  3. Paste the default layout content copied in the first step
  4. Customize the layout as you'd like

Roadmap

See the open issues for a list of proposed features (and known issues).

Project philosophy

WIP - as to not completely copypasta the Hacker readme 😀
