Jekyll HMFAYSAL Theme

Project name: Jekyll HMFAYSAL THEME
Author: Hossain Mohd. Faysal
Project type: A Bold Theme for Jekyll
License: GNU GPL V2

Jekyll HMFAYSAL is a minimal, bold, responsive theme for your Jekyll powered blog. This theme powers Hossain Mohd Faysal's blog http://www.theevilgenius.tk/. It is based on Minimal Mistakes Theme -- by designer slash illustrator Michael Rose.

The theme features:

  • A bold look, perfect for bloggers.

  • Responsive layout. Looking good on mobile, tablet, and desktop.
  • Gracefully degrading in older browsers. Compatible with Internet Explorer 9+ and all modern browsers.
  • Minimal embellishments and subtle animations.
  • Readable typography to make your words shine. (Uses Electrolize and Abel from Adobe Edgefont)
  • Support for large images to call out your favorite posts.
  • Disqus comments if you choose to enable.
  • Simple and clear permalink structure.
  • Calculation of post read-time based on word count.
  • Tags for Open Graph and Twitter Cards for a better social sharing experience.
  • Vanilla custom 404 page to get you started.
  • Stylesheets for Pygments, Coderay and Highlight.Js to make your code examples look snazzy.
  • Simple search that overlays results based on post title.
  • Grunt build script for easier theme development.
  • Sitemap for search engines

Basic Setup for new Jekyll site

  1. Install Jekyll and read through the documentation if you haven't already.
  2. Fork the Jekyll HMFAYSAL Theme
  3. Clone the repo you just forked.
  4. Edit _config.yml to personalize your site.
  5. Check out the sample posts in _posts to see examples for pulling in large feature images, assigning categories and tags, and other YAML data.
  6. Read the documentation below for further customization pointers and documentation.

Pro-tip: Delete the gh-pages branch after cloning and start fresh by branching off master. There is a bunch of garbage in gh-pages used for the theme's demo site that I'm guessing you don't want on your site.
