Demo & Documentation


I'd strongly recommend you to fork accent and use the "upstream" strategy described on this page to keep accent up to date.

If you don't want to do that, just clone accent and use

bundle exec jekyll serve

in the root of the accent directory, or, simply download accent.


You can edit the variables in _config.yml as per your needs. Edit only the variables under the section marked User Settings.

Most of the variables are self explanatory. Notes about few of the non obvious ones:

  1. You can change the hex value of the variable $accent-color in _sass/_style.scss to any color value that you want. This will change the accent of the theme.

  2. Set intro to true to reveal a short bio section on the index page.

  3. Setting about_footer to true or false will turn the about section at the bottom of every post to on or off respectively.

  4. description is the summary that will show up in places like facebook thumbnails, twitter cards and google search results.

Note: Don't change any variable under Build Settings.


  • To create a new post, simply save the .markdown file in the _posts directory in the format.
  • For Syntax highlighting, accent uses Rouge which is the default highlighter in Jekyll 3 and above. If you don't know how to highlight a code block, refer.

  • To set up Google Analytics tracking id, just set the tracking_id variable in _config.yml.
