Latest commit 2fe65d4 Jan 6, 2017 @kxxvii typo


Kikofri is a theme for Jekyll that's a fork of the Kiko theme by @gfjaru (which I do recommend).

It came about because I like my themes like I like my music: ugly, old and barren. It's an assortment of hacks filtered through web-design choices from the turn of the millennium.

You'll see it undead here

To do:

  • Clean up redundant markup
  • Reevaluate the need for four layouts
  • Listen to Good Friendly Violent Fun by Exodus

How to:

  1. Fork this repository
  2. Clone the repository to your computer.
    git clone
  3. Run it.
    jekyll serve
  4. If that doesn't work you might want to take a look at the Gemfile in the cloned repository and satisfy dependencies where it is needed.
    • I'd recommend rvm for this.
  5. Go to in your browser.

General pointers:

Make it a little less ugly:

  1. Change the name and modify nav at _config.yml.
  2. Make some appropriate changes — or inappropriate if you're into those kind of things — in
  3. Navigate to the _posts folder and remove the example content by writing rm * in your terminal (make sure that you're in the right folder)
    • while you're at it create a post of your own like so: touch
    • then do this: echo -e "---\ntitle: 'Friends Don't Lie.'\ndescription: 'No more.'\nauthor: 'Eleven'\n---" >
  4. Type away! Reject my reality and substitute your own!
