A theme for the Blot blogging platform

This theme was heavily inspired by the design of mnmlist, a website by Leo Babauta and the work of Manuel Moreale.

This is a theme for use with the blot.im blogging platform. It's wonderful, you should check it out.

This theme is authored by Chad Moore. Feel free to fork it and modify it. Send me an email to tell me all about the cool things you do with it.

WARNING: I'm not a developer, and can't support you very much in your explorations with the theme. Please use at your own risk.

Install

The developer of Blot is working on a better way to install themes from other users. Until then, it's a manual process:

  1. Download this theme
  2. In the Blot settings, create a new template
  3. Enable local editing. The files will download to your Templates folder under Blot (usually in your dropbox folder)
  4. Replacethe files created by Blot with these files from github

Customization

You'll have to edit the entry.html and entries.html files to remove my cusomizations. I'm uploading this as is. I'm sure there's better ways to do what I did with this, so please improve it.

As for styles, you'll have to be mindful of the purple. #9A14CC and #bd8ece are the colors I've used. You can edit them in lines 15 and 16 of the style.css file.

You'll have to edit the head.html file to make the site your own.

And script.js and public.htmlif you want webmentions

You can’t perform that action at this time.
