A Jekyll theme for curation websites.
What is Kurator?
Kurator is an open-source Jekyll theme for curation websites. Just fork the theme, add some content, commit the theme to Github, and activate Github pages to run your own curation website.
How does it work?
Kurator makes use of the collection feature of Jekyll. Every file in the
_curation directory creates a new entry in the collection. Just copy the sample file and fill in the websites details.
In addition, Kurator uses the sources of Bootstrap 4 Alpha. That means: You can use any of the Bootstrap components in the theme and you can easily change the look and feel of the theme just by editing the SASS files. Github pages automaticallly render the Jekyll theme and all the SASS files.
