What is it?
Blogginekyll is a super simple theme for a Jekyll blog. You can clone/fork it and start blogging right away!
Why did you build it?
We as developers are notoriously bad at designing. I thought I'd help out by building something that looks good (I hope).
Sold? Ok awesome heres how to get started!
What you'll need
You'll need to install Jekyll if you don't already have it.
gem install jekyll
Once everything is installed, fork or clone Blogginekyll.
Making it your own
You'll need to add your own information, ie what you wish to call your blog, strapline and about section. I set up an interactive rake task to help with this so run
Adding your personal touch
It's also unbelievably easy to customise the style of your blog. Open up
_setup.scss in your editor and make changes to the variables and those changes will be made across the site.
Be sure to tell sass to watch for changes, I have a shell script for this. Navigate to a new tab in terminal and run
sh watch.sh. #b000m
Awesome, final words?
Sure, you're free to customise any of the code as much as you'd like. Contributions are welcome, and if you're using Blogginekyll for your site I'd love to see it so tweet me (@bradleyfew)!
