This theme uses some parts of Twitter Bootstrap, which allows it to look nice on a mobile devices using a collapsable nav bar and hiding the sidebar.

Some cool features:

All these features could be set up in _config.yml. Also you can have social icons which could lead to your social profiles. It uses font-awesome, so you can have any icon you want to any social profile. Out-of-the box it has: LinkedIn, GitHub, StackOverflow, LastFm, Instagram. And you can easily add more by adding new style in theme.css and setting it in _config.yml.


If you don’t have your own blog you can clone this repository and put your articles in a _posts folder. If you already have your own blog then I think you can clone this repository and copy-paste content keeping your _posts folder.

After you will have to set up your _config.yml

I tried to setup gem installation, but it doesn’t work well as theme has many customizations. So I wouldn’t recommend to use gem.

Blog tags

To use this feature you simply will need to create a markdown file for each tag which you are using in you site in tag folder. To simplify this procedure there is an /admin page, which outputs the bash command which you just need to run inside tag folder of your site. Also don’t forget to rerun it when you add a post with new tag.
