This website is my personal sandbox and digital junk drawer. It was compiled using the Jekyll static-site generator.

Project Structure

├── _includes
├── _layouts
├── _plugins
├── _posts
├── _projects
├── _sass
├── assets
│   └── js
└── css
  • _includes and _layouts are templates that Jekyll uses to generate layout classes and page styles based on YAML Front Matter.
  • _plugins is for any extra plugins used by jekyll. I've added a Gist plugin, so gists can easily be embedded.
  • Each project and post get its own .md file in the appropriate folder.
  • _sass files are compiled to the main css file in the css folder.
  • Any custom or project-specific javascript is loaded on an as-needed basis from assets/js. Project files are stored in subfolders of /assets/.
  • Standalone pages (about, blog list, connect, etc) have their own individual .md files in the project root.
  • I'm using a modified version of BEM syntax and atomic design to separate my stylesheets. It helps keep selector scope sane, and avoids ugly !importants, @extends, and the like.
