You might well ask at this point why bother making a new Casper's clone? Although this is inspired by Kasper, there are several additional features which make this port closer to the original theme. Besides, it was recently updated to match the current version of the theme.
The main difference to the original is still the fact that Jasper expects a single author. With a bit of tweaking it shouldn't be too difficult to enable a per-post author. Feel free to fork and improve on this.
Important: For security reasons, Github doesn't allow plugins (under _plugins/) when deploying with Github Pages. This means that we need to generate your site locally (as explained below) and push the resulting HTML to a Github repository. This is exactly what I have done for the generating the live demo.
Jasper theme includes
- Author page (New 07.02.2015)
- Tag page(s) (New 07.02.2015)
- 404 page (New 07.02.2015)
- Toggleable sliding sidebar (New 07.02.2015)
- Related posts view (New 30.10.2015)
- Tag description(s) (New 30.10.2015)
- Google Analytics tracking
- Code Syntax Highlight
- Author's profile with picture
- Disqus comments (not Ghost standard)
How to use it
Simply clone this repository (master branch), and then run
jekyll serve inside the directory. Upload the resulting
_site/ contents to your repository (gh-pages branch).
Issues and contributing
I have tested this install with Ruby v2.2.2p95 (Mac OS RVM) and Jekyll v3.0.0. If you run into any issues please log them on the issue tracker.
Feel free pull-request your patches and fixes.
Most of the work has been already done by the Ghost team and Rosario. Many thanks to them
