Welcome to Jekyll-Indieweb. The goal of this project was to provide someone without a web presence a quick and easy way to start using the basics of the Indieweb.


I've followed along a few IndieWeb Camps and observed a few people new to both the indieweb as well as having their own web presence. I wanted to provide another option for those users to have a fairly simple method to easily get up and going with with a web site ready for indieweb and be able to dive in.


This web site template can be run with a standalone Jekyll or, even easier, using GitHub Pages. Using the latter you'll have your web site up and running in minutes if you follow these steps:

  1. Create a GitHub account if you haven't already.
  2. Fork this repository to create a copy of it in your own GitHub account.
  3. Change the name of the repository to somestring.github.io (e.g. myindiewebpage.github.io).
  4. Use GitHub's own editor to change a file (e.g. the about.md in the root of the repository) and commit the change.
  5. You did it. Your web site should now be available via http://somestring.github.io (e.g. http://myindiewebpage.github.io).


If you use the GitHub pages workflow described in the Installation section, the usage of this template is fairly simple. Everytime you change something at your web site and commit this change using git commit or the GitHub editor, Jekyll is triggered and your website is redeployed at the URL specified by your repository name (in the example above http://myindiewebpage.github.io).


  1. Fork it!
  2. Create your feature branch: git checkout -b my-new-feature
  3. Commit your changes: git commit -am 'Add some feature'
  4. Push to the branch: git push origin my-new-feature
  5. Submit a pull request :D
