Casper Jekyll High-Perf

This is a high-performance port of Ghost's default theme Casper for Jekyll.

Feel free to fork, change, modify and re-use it. Goal was to get the page load under ~14Kb after gzip. Lemme know how I did.
Works with gihub.io pages, just push it to master of your {githubname}.github.io repo
If you crave more speed, uncomment the /assets/js/bundle.min.js script tag on default.html and it will prefetch pages when users hover over links, via Prefetch, by Joe Podwys

Installation

Based on Kasper theme, by Rosario. Most of the work has been already done by the Ghost team and Rosario. I've just made it more high-performance.
