Jekyll Theme for Lizard's Asylum

This is the Jekyll theme for my personal blog, adopted from a pretty old-school CSS2 stylesheet I wrote years ago.


Add this line to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "jekyll-lizards-asylum"

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

theme: jekyll-lizards-asylum

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install jekyll-lizards-asylum


This uses the same set of layouts as minima.


Bug reports and pull requests are welcome on GitHub at[USERNAME]/hello. This project is intended to be a safe, welcoming space for collaboration, and contributors are expected to adhere to the Contributor Covenant code of conduct.


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, _sass and assets tracked with Git will be bundled. To add a custom directory to your theme-gem, please edit the regexp in jekyll-lizards-asylum.gemspec accordingly.


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