Readify

Readify is a responsive Octopress theme focused on readibility. It's designed to provide a pleasant reading experience on any device.

See the demo.

Features

  • designed using a modular scale
  • defined using rem units
  • expressed with large, legible fonts
  • built with Sass
  • responsively designed using media queries

Read my blog post to learn more.

Install

cd octopress
git clone https://github.com/vladigleba/readify.git .themes/readify
rake install['readify']
rake generate

NOTE: Some shells may require you to escape brackets, so if you get a "no matches found" error, try rake install\['readify'\].

Variables

You can modify the following variables (defined in sass/custom/_styles.scss):

  • $accent-color
  • $accent-hover-color
  • $text-color
  • $secondary-text-color
  • $line-color
  • $border-radius-size
  • $hide-line-numbers (default is true).

Profile Picture

Readify contains styles for a profile picture in the about page. You can take advantage of them by adding an id attribute with the value of portrait to your profile pic img element, like so:

<img id="portrait" src="http://publicly/available/profile/pic.jpeg" alt="portrait" />

The picture should be a square that's at least 240px wide.

Updating

cd octopress/.themes/readify
git pull origin master
cd ../..
rake install['readify']
rake generate

NOTE: Some shells may require you to escape brackets, so if you get a "no matches found" error, try rake install\['readify'\].
