The home page is located under file. To change the content or design you have to edit the default.html file in _layouts folder.

In order to add a new page, create a new html or markdown file under root directory or inside _pages folder. To add a link in navigation add it in _config.yml:

navigation: # Navigation links
  - {name: 'Home', link: '/'}
  - {name: 'About', link: '/about'}
  - {name: 'Contact', link: '/contact'}

name is the text that will be shown and link, well, it's a link.


To set up your environment to develop this theme, run bundle install and npm install.

The theme is setup just like a normal Jekyll site! Check out file structure overview for details. To test the theme, run gulp and open your browser at http://localhost:3000. This starts a Jekyll server using the theme. Add pages, documents, data, etc. like normal to test the theme's contents. As you make modifications to the theme and to the content, your site will regenerate and you should see the changes in the browser after a refresh, just like normal.


The theme is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
