theming the site

Choose a theme for your site.

Mine was done using Hyde a brazen two-column Jekyll theme that pairs a prominent sidebar with uncomplicated content. It's based on Poole, the Jekyll butler.

  • git cloned hyde and copied the contents into my git repository
  • went through all of the files in the root and adjusted them to be about my site
  • removed the existing _posts and added my content following the same file format
  • adjusted the index.html file to be to my liking
  • public/favicon.ico - adjust to one that you like
  • etc, etc, etc
