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
