The Hacker-Blog theme

Hacker-Blog is a minimalistic, responsive jekyll theme built for hackers. It is based on the hacker theme for project pages.

Demo: https://ashishchaudhary.in/hacker-blog

Included

  1. Pagination
  2. SEO tags
  3. Archive Page
  4. RSS
  5. Sitemap

Usage

  1. Fork and Clone this repository
  2. Customize your blog
  3. Add a new post in _posts/ directory with proper name format (as shown in placeholder posts)
  4. Commit and push to master

Local Build

If you want to see the changes before pushing the blog to Github, do a local build.

  1. gem install jekyll
  2. gem install jekyll-seo-tag
  3. (cd to the blog directory, then:) jekyll serve --watch --port 8000
  4. Go to http://0.0.0.0:8000/ in your web browser.

Note: In case you have set a baseurl different than / in _config.yml, go to http://0.0.0.0:8000/BASEURL/ instead.

Local build using docker

docker run --rm -p 8000:8000 \
  --volume="LOCATION_OF_YOUR_JEKYLL_BLOG:/srv/jekyll" \
  -it tocttou/jekyll:3.5 \
  jekyll serve --watch --port 8000

Replace LOCATION_OF_YOUR_JEKYLL_BLOG with the full path of your blog repository. Visit http://localhost:8000/ to access the blog.

Note: In case you have set a baseurl different than / in _config.yml, go to http://0.0.0.0:8000/BASEURL/ instead.
