jekyll-bootflat is a gem based theme for Jekyll, and has been extracted out of jekyll octopod and will be used there.

It is basically a Twitter Bootstrap theme, but extended by Bootflat and Font Awesome.

I am a Bootflat fanboy, and I agree to their tagline "Bootflat is built on the foundations of Bootstrap, visioned in a stunning flat design."


What's better than a screenshot?



Add this line to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "jekyll-bootflat"

And add this line to your Jekyll site's _config.yml:

theme: jekyll-bootflat

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install jekyll-bootflat

To set up your environment to develop this theme, run bundle install.

Your theme is setup just like a normal Jekyll site! To test your theme, run bundle exec jekyll serve and open your browser at http://localhost:4000. This starts a Jekyll server using your theme. Add pages, documents, data, etc. like normal to test your theme's contents. As you make modifications to your theme and to your content, your site will regenerate and you should see the changes in the browser after a refresh, just like normal.

When your theme is released, only the files in _layouts, _includes, and _sass tracked with Git will be released.


The theme is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
