Design and development principles of this theme:

  1. As few dependencies as possible
  2. No build script needed
  3. First class mobile experience
  4. Make the content shine


To set up your environment to develop this theme, run bundle install.

Your theme is set up 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 the theme is released, only the files in _layouts, _includes, and _sass tracked with Git will be released.


The theme is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.
