Having trouble working with the theme? Found a typo in the documentation? Interested in adding a feature or fixing a bug? Then by all means submit an issue or pull request. If this is your first pull request, it may be helpful to read up on the GitHub Flow first.
Minimal Mistakes has been designed as a base for you to customize and fit your site's unique needs. Please keep this in mind when requesting features and/or submitting pull requests. If it's not something that most people will use, I probably won't consider it. When in doubt ask.
This goes for author sidebar links and "share button" additions -- I have no intention of merging in every possibly option, the essentials are there to get you started
To help me out try to avoid creating pull requests on
master and instead branch off of
develop. It's much easier for me to test, merge, and roll them into new releases this way.
Theme documentation and demo pages can be found in the
/docs if submitting improvements, typo corrections, etc.
To set up your environment to develop this theme, run
To test the theme, run
bundle exec rake preview and open your browser at
http://localhost:4000/test/. This starts a Jekyll server using your theme and the contents of the
test/ directory. As you make modifications to your theme and to the example site, your site will regenerate and you should see the changes in the browser after a refresh.
