# A generator that creates category pages for jekyll sites.
#
# Included filters :
# - category_links: Outputs the list of categories as comma-separated <a> links.
# - date_to_html_string: Outputs the post.date as formatted html, with hooks for CSS styling.
#
# Available _config.yml settings :
# - category_dir: The subfolder to build category pages in (default is 'categories').
# - category_title_prefix: The string used before the category name in the page title (default is
# 'Category: ').
