  • Install the [GitHub Pages gem][pages] (includes Jekyll): bundle install
  • Run the jekyll server: jekyll serve

You should have a server up and running locally at http://localhost:4000.

  • [favicon.png][favicon]: This is the icon in your browser's address bar. You should
    change it to whatever you'd like.
  • [logo.png][logo]: A square-ish image that appears in the upper-left corner
