Lagom is a Swedish word with no direct English equivalent, meaning "just the right amount"
Lagom, a Jekyll blog theme with just the right amount of style.
Extracted lovingly from http://mdswanson.com for your enjoyment!
- Responsive, based on Skeleton
- Font Awesome for icons
- Open Sans from Google web fonts
- Built-in Atom feed
- Fork this repository
- Clone it:
git clone https://github.com/YOUR-USER/lagom
- Install the GitHub Pages gem (includes Jekyll):
- Run the jekyll server:
You should have a server up and running locally at http://localhost:4000.
Next you'll want to change a few things. Most of them can be changed directly in theme.yml. That's where you can add your social links, change the accent color, stuff like that.
!BLOG_EMAILin site.data.theme.description, will replace contents with site.data.theme.email
There's a few other places that you'll want to change, too:
- CNAME: If you're using this on GitHub Pages with a custom domain name,
you'll want to change this to be the domain you're going to use. All that should
be in here is a domain name on the first line and nothing else (like:
- favicon.png: This is the icon in your browser's address bar. You should change it to whatever you'd like.
- logo.png: A square-ish image that appears in the upper-left corner
You should deploy with GitHub Pages - it's just easier.
All you should have to do is rename your repository on GitHub to be
username.github.io. Since everything is on the
gh-pages branch, you
should be able to see your new site at http://username.github.io.
MIT with no added caveats, so feel free to use this on your site without linking back to me or using a disclaimer or anything silly like that.
