Your theme is setup just like a normal Jekyll site! To test your theme, run
bundle exec jekyll serve and open your browser at
http://localhost:4000. This starts a Jekyll server using your theme. Add pages, documents, data, etc. like normal to test your theme's contents. As you make modifications to your theme and to your content, your site will regenerate and you should see the changes in the browser after a refresh, just like normal.
When your theme is released, only the files in
_sass tracked with Git will be released.
