David Dearing Home Page

This is the code for the David Dearing Home Page, forked from the code for the Yevgeniy Brikman Home Page.

David Dearing Home Page Screenshot

I wanted a clean, simple home page where I could put my posts and projects. It had to be fast, mobile-friendly, free to build, and easy to update. I thought that the http://www.ybrikman.com website was an excellent template, and this is the result after some of my own minor modifications. Forks and pull requests are welcome!

The upstream repository for this fork is brikis98/yevgeniy-brikman-homepage


Check out Migrating from Blogger to GitHub Pages and launching the new ybrikman.com for background info.

Quick start

  1. Use Git to clone this repo.
  2. Make sure you have Jekyll installed.
  3. Just the first time: bundle install.
  4. To build the site and serve it: bundle exec jekyll serve.
  5. To test: http://localhost:4000.

See the Jekyll and GitHub Pages documentation for more info.

Docker quick start

As an alternative to installing Ruby and Jekyll, if you're a user of Docker and Docker Compose, you can run a Docker image of yevgeniy-brikman-homepage that has all the dependencies already setup for you.

On Linux:

  1. git clone this repo
  2. docker-compose up
  3. Go to http://localhost:4000 to test

On OS X, using the docker-osx-dev project:

  1. git clone this repo
  2. docker-osx-dev
  3. docker-compose up
  4. Go to http://dockerhost:4000 to test

Technologies

  1. Built with Jekyll. This website is completely static and I use basic HTML or Markdown for everything.
  2. Hosted on GitHub Pages. I'm using the GitHub Pages Gem and only Jekyll plugins that are available on GitHub Pages.
  3. The design is loosely based on Kasper, Pixyll, and Medium.
  4. I used Basscss, Sass, Font Awesome Icons, Hint.css,and Google Fonts for styling.
  5. I used jQuery, lazySizes, and responsive-nav.js for behavior.
  6. I added Disqus as a commenting system.
  7. I'm using UptimeRobot and Google Analytics for monitoring and metrics.
  8. Most of the blog posts were imported from my old Blogger account, so there are a few hacky Ruby scripts in _scripts left over from that migration.
    • [dpd] I've purged these _scripts from my fork of the repo
