Adding a blog post
- Create a new file in the
_postsdirectory or copy an existing post. Its name should have the format
- Set the
title(short title of the post, appears as the HTML
author(your GitHub user name) in the front matter. If you'd like to use code highlighting in the post, add the field
nav. MathJax is available via
- If this is your first blog post, please indicate if you want your name and a profile picture to appear on the post. If not, you can remove the
authorfield from the front matter.
- Write your content using Markdown. For code highlighting, use the usual GitHub syntax:
```scala def yourCode: Here ```
That's it, we'll take care of the rest. If you wish, you can also submit just a plain Markdown file and we'll be happy to integrate it.
Preview changes locally
This site is built using Jekyll. To preview your changes, you have to install the following things first:
Python 2 and Pygments
Note: Make sure that
/usr/bin/pythonis Python 2 and not Python 3, otherwise you might get weird errors.
coffee-script gem requires node.js (we don't even use CoffeeScript).
Sorry about that.
Once you've done that, you need to install
jekyll. Find out if your package manager provides it, and if not, install it via
# don't forget to add the directory where Gem binaries are installed to your `$PATH` # on my machine, that's `$HOME/.gem/ruby/2.1.0/bin` gem install jekyll
As of this writing,
3.1.2 are required.
There's also an official installation guide. Additionally to
jekyll, don't forget to install
Everything set up? Great. Now you just have to tell Jekyll to generate the site (the empty quotation at the end is important):
jekyll serve --watch --baseurl ''
This will start a local web server on port 4000 where you can browse the site and which re-generates the site if you change the source files.
build.sh script sets up a Python 2.7
virtualenv and starts
jekyll under the assumption that
jekyll and Pygments are installed as specified above.
