README.md

jaan.io (Preview here)

This Jekyll theme powers my personal website.

This is forked from Cole Townsend's Balzac theme with heavy inspiration from his website.

Some improvements were introduced by following Michael Rose's So Simple themes for Jekyll (such as Bing Verification, Twitter Cards, Google Analytics, Authorship, and Webmaster Tools support).

Thanks to Amédée d'Aboville for the nifty javascript hover-over in the title.

Setup and settings are similar to Balzac's. Please file an issue if something is not clear or you have any questions.

Testing locally

jekyll serve --config _config.yml,_config_dev.yml --watch

scss -t compress assets/sass/i.scss assets/css/i.css

Check for broken internal and external links: rake test

Deploying

Deploy with s3_website. jekyll build s3_website push

Managing ruby on a mac

Use rbenv. As in this guide.

On a mac, use rvm for managing ruby environment.

Use bundler for managing gems: gem install bundler Run from root of the repo: bundler install Important: need to rehash to create symbolic links to gems like jekyll - rbenv rehash Then run jekyll commands: jekyll build

Workflow for creating vector graphics for blog posts

  • Use keynote to make figures.
  • Export to pdf.
  • Crop in preview.
  • Use inkscape to convert to svg: inkscape --without-gui --file=in.pdf --export-plain-svg=out.svg
  • Put in _svg folder, include using {% asset out.svg %}

License

Use this for anything you want.

Wishlist

  • fix copy to bibtex button; overriding CSS with -webkit-appearance: none; does not seem to work.
  • figure out how to use markdownify liquid filter in paper template, to support markdown in paper.description
You can’t perform that action at this time.
