Jekyll Mentions

@mentionable support for your Jekyll site

Gem Version Build Status

Usage

Add the following to your site's Gemfile

gem 'jekyll-mentions'

And add the following to your site's _config.yml

gems:
  - jekyll-mentions

In any page or post, use @mentions as you would normally, e.g.

Hey @benbalter, what do you think of this?

Note: Jekyll Mentions simply turns the @mentions into links, it does not notify the mentioned user.

Configuration

Have your own social network? No problem. We allow you to configure the base URL of all the mentions.

To change it, add the following to your Jekyll configuration:

jekyll-mentions:
  base_url: https://twitter.com

If you're lazy like me, you can use this shorthand:

jekyll-mentions: https://twitter.com

Et voilà! Your mentions will now use that base URL instead of the default of https://github.com.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
