Academic Pages is a Github Pages template for academic websites.
- Register a GitHub account if you don't have one and confirm your e-mail (required!)
- Click the "Use this template" button in the top right.
- On the "New repository" page, enter your repository name as "[your GitHub username].github.io", which will also be your website's URL.
- Set site-wide configuration and add your content.
- Upload any files (like PDFs, .zip files, etc.) to the
files/directory. They will appear at https://[your GitHub username].github.io/files/example.pdf.
- Check status by going to the repository settings, in the "GitHub pages" section
- (Optional) Use the Jupyter notebooks or python scripts in the
markdown_generatorfolder to generate markdown files for publications and talks from a TSV file.

When you are initially working your website, it is very useful to be able to preview the changes locally before pushing them to GitHub. To work locally you will need to:
- Clone the repository and made updates as detailed above.
- Make sure you have ruby-dev, bundler, and nodejs installed:
sudo apt install ruby-dev ruby-bundler nodejs
bundle installto install ruby dependencies. If you get errors, delete Gemfile.lock and try again.
jekyll serve -l -H localhostto generate the HTML and serve it from
localhost:4000the local server will automatically rebuild and refresh the pages on change.
This repository was forked (then detached) by Stuart Geiger from the Minimal Mistakes Jekyll Theme, which is © 2016 Michael Rose and released under the MIT License (see LICENSE.md). It is currently being maintained by Robert Zupko and additional maintainers would be welcomed.
If you have bugfixes and enhancements that you would like to submit as a pull request, you will need to fork this repository as opposed to using it as a template. This will also allow you to synchronize your copy of template to your fork as well.
Unfortunately, one logistical issue with a template theme like Academic Pages that makes it a little tricky to get bug fixes and updates to the core theme. If you use this template and customize it, you will probably get merge conflicts if you attempt to synchronize. If you want to save your various .yml configuration files and markdown files, you can delete the repository and fork it again. Or you can manually patch.
