A new octopress theme created by taking the best out of everything.

Simple, good readability, less clustered and beautiful.

Check the live demo here: http://bhrigu.me

Quick install

  % cd octopress
  % git clone https://github.com/bhrigu123/abacus .themes/abacus
  % rake install['abacus']
  % rake generate

Setting up the theme

After you have followed the above steps, do the following to finish setting up the theme:

  1. Set up your site title, subtitle and author in your _config.yml file (if you haven't already).

  2. Open file source/_includes/custom/navigation_links.html and edit the given list items. These will be in your navigation bar and home page. Edit/add/remove the anchor tags and their links.

  3. In the folder source/images, replace the given avatar.jpg image file with your own pic. This pic will be displayed in the author info section of your blog posts.

  4. Run rake generate once more.

Note: If your date format is not appearing properly on your site (it can happen that it shows "ordinal" written instead of date), then open your _config.yml file and edit the date_format parameter and change its value to:
date_format: "%a %e %b %Y, %l:%M %p"

More customizations

Changing the banner

The banner image path and name is: source/images/banner.jpg. To change your banner, replace this pic with another one (make sure it's named banner.jpg only) & run rake generate.
If you have a different format (eg png) banner, you can directly edit the source banner CSS at sass/partials/_banner.scss and edit the URL of background-image attribute under #banner-image css.

Google Adsense header

If you want to include your Google Adsense header directly via config, you can add your Adsense client ID in your _config.yml with attribute name google_adsense_client. For eg. google_adsense_client: ca-pub-xxxx.

Cover image for sharing your pages / posts on social media

When you share your page or a blog post in social media (eg Facebook), you get an image in the shared link. Now, the social media platform might not always pick up the cover pic in the share from the images present in your post. Using this theme, you can define a specific image for cover pic of the shared post.
To do that, in your page or post's source yml headers at the top (where there are layout, title, attributes present), add another attribute: coverimage, and give the relative path of your image from your source. For eg. coverimage: /images/folder1/img.png

This theme is inspired from Medium and was originally a fork of octostrap3.
