This is my blog. It’s built on top of Jekyll with lots of custom things because I have overly strong opinions about Markdown.
My posts are stored in a different repo. I really like writing my posts the way I want to write them. I don’t want to have anything specific to Jekyll in there. All of the custom things help convert things from how the posts are stored to what Jekyll wants.
Get the source
$ git clone https://github.com/soffes/soffes.blog.git $ cd soffes.blog
You’ll need Image Magick first. You can install this with Homebrew:
$ brew install imagemagick
Install the Ruby dependencies (you’ll need Bundler installed first):
$ bundle install
You’ll also need Node. You can install with
$ npm i
Now you can import my posts and start the server:
$ rake import $ rake server
Now open localhost:4000 in your browser to see it running.
