Octogray test

octgray is a theme for Octopress.


$ cd octopress
$ git submodule add .themes/octogray
$ .themes/octogray/ installs plugins and patches Gemfile, _config.yml and Rakefile, in addition to does rake install[octogray].

You will be asked if you want to apply patches to Gemfile, _config.yml and Rakefile.

If you want to keep current files, ignore and check these files in octogray later.

If you are using GitHub pages, do again:

$ rake setup_github_pages

This task is also updated and provides you alternative method of push: push_ex, which locates public/_deploy directories other than octopress directory.

It is very useful if you are using cloud storage, such Dropbox, for octopress directory, because many files in public/_deploy directories are updated during generate/deploy. Then, the computer will use much network resources.

In addition, push_ex refreshes remote repository every time, i.e. no history is remained in such GitHub page's repository.

Normally you have a history for source, and such history of page itself is rather annoying when you put something wrong by accident. (all history could be seen in GitHub web page.)
