Travis Illig's blog on GitHub Pages.

I followed Phil Haack's lead and moved my blog from Subtext to GitHub Pages. (I also sorta-forked/stole the layout and basic Jekyll stuff, because Haack's awesome and I'm not.)

I had to fork the Subtext blog exporter to get my content out, but you're welcome to that as well.

Using Jekyll with GitHub Pages

Stuff I always forget because I don't live in this world for very long at a given time:

  • bundle exec jekyll serve --watch to run the site local
  • rake test for HTML:Proofer link testing
  • bundle update to get the latest libraries
  • Windows hates pygments and GitHub pages doesn't yet support rouge, so set highlighter: null in configuration while testing on Windows.
  • Liquid filters are pretty helpful.
