The Plain

The Plain is a minimalist Jekyll theme, ideally designed for your personal blog use. This Jekyll theme provides a minimum distraction so you can focus on writing that matters to you and your readers. This theme is originally inspired from Leonard Lamprecht's leo theme.

LICENSE GENERATOR VERSION TRAVIS-CI

SCREENSHOT

Usage

On an unlimited Jekyll host

NOTE This does NOT work on GitHub, see the next section.

Put this in your Gemfile:

gem 'the-plain'

and run bundle install to install the plugin.

Add this to your sites _config.yml file:

theme: the-plain

Then copy some of the settings from this repo's _config.yml file to your own, and modify them.

On GitHub

GitHub - for your user account pages or repository gh-pages - only supports a limited set of themes.

Therefore, you need to use the 'remote_theme:' setting instead of 'theme:', which is supported by a 3rd party plugin.

Put this in your Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-remote-theme'

and run bundle install to install the plugin.

Add the following to your site's _config.yml to activate the plugin and to select this theme:

plugins:
  - jekyll-remote-theme

remote_theme: heiswayi/the-plain

This will grab the theme directly from the GitHub repo.

Now copy some of the settings from this repo's _config.yml file to your own, and modify them.
