Solar Theme for Jekyll

A stylish theme for Jekyll blogs, based on the Solarized color palette.

Installation

There are two ways to use Solar. You can either clone-and-go, copying the repository and tweaking the contents to taste, or you can cherry-pick the files you want and integrate them into an existing Jekyll instance.

If you're starting a new blog, you want to clone-and-go. Just git clone https://github.com/redwallhp/solar-theme-jekyll.git, make any changes you want to the template, pages or _config.yml and start blogging with Jekyll. Easy.

If you're wanting to replace the theme of an existing Jekyll blog, either option should work. If you want to replace files individually, the files and directories you want to make sure to copy are:

  1. _layouts
  2. archives
  3. assets
  4. feed.xml
  5. index.xml

You'll also want to compare Solar's _config.yml with your own, making any appropriate changes.
