README.md

This blog is hosted on GitHub Pages using Jekyll. If you want to fork this blog and make your own, here is how you get started.

This is a two-branch system. The master branch is where the source code of you blog as well as the post content lives. The gh-pages branch is generated from the source branch and contains the actual static files for your site + posts. This is what GitHub will end up hosting for you.

Clone it

First, you need to fork this repository to your own account. Github looks for a branch called gh-pages, so create your blog content there.

# fork the repository using the github UI
git clone git@github.com:username/blog.git ~/projects/blog
cd ~/projects/blog

You probably also want to remove my posts, and my git history.

rm -f _posts/*
rm -rf .git
git init
git add .
git commit -m "Initial commit"
git remote add origin git@github.com:username/blog.git

Install Dependencies

OSX

brew update
brew install ruby rbenv ruby-build
eval "$(rbenv init -)"  # update PATH
echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bash_profile  # and update PATH in future shells
rbenv install
gem install bundler
bundle install  # may need to re-open shell to get updated PATH
./run.sh

Run it!

This command wraps bundle exec jekyll serve --watch, and also launches a web browser. You may need to refresh a couple of times to see the content.

./run.sh

You should now be able to open http://localhost:4000/blog/index.html

Create a test Post and Publish

Just create new files in _posts in the format 2013-01-01-post-title.md. Here is a template to get you started:

---
layout: post
title: This is my new post
tags: python linux
---

I [cloned this blog](https://github.com/chase-seibert/blog)

While you're editing, you can view your changes live. When you're done, run ./publish-website.sh to publish it.

git add .
git commit -m "my first blog entry"
./publish-website.sh

Your blog should show up on http://username.github.io/blog.
