The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tells the story of a lawyer investigating the connection of two persons, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Mr. Edward Hyde. This lawyer is Mr. Gabriel John Utterson, a loyal friend of Jekyll's (and, soon enough, a loyal friend of yours, as well).

Utterson was built on top of Jekyll, a static site generator, and Poole, a vanilla Jekyll install. It was designed and developed by @alidcastano, to provide a minimal and unassuming theme, focused on what matters: you and your content.

See the theme in action.

*A minimal home page.*


Utterson provides a fully-functional setup:

  • Home Page with according navigation makes your site is easy to navigate.
  • Sliding email subscription form lets you can build your audience in a an unobtrusive manner.
  • Simple Contact Form with Formspree, provides a way for your your readers easily reach you by email, without you having to reveal personal information.
  • Scrolling navigation bar for posts lets readers can easily go back to your home page.
  • Fade-in footer allows you to have one last call to action at the bottom of each post, without getting in the way of your content.

Also, building off Poole's vanilla install:

  • A holistic Jekyll setup (Layouts, config, archive page, [404]({{ site.baseurl }}/404.html), example pages and posts.)
  • Easily scalable text and component sizing with rem units in the CSS.
  • Mobile Friendly Design so that your site can be accessed on any device.
*Content focused pages, with a sliding email subscription form.*

Getting Started

Make it yours in under 20 minutes.

Three simple steps:

  1. Edit the _config.yml and put your own information.
  2. Edit the markdown files in _includes/content and talk about yourself.
  3. Replace the images in /img directory with your own.


  • You can change default variables in _sass/variables (i.e. if to change nav link colors).
  • If you don't want to use Formspree for your subscription form, you can change that in _includes/email-form.html.
