What is this?

This is a jekyll based-blog. Jekyll is a ruby-based framework for generating blogs. You write posts in markdown and jekyll takes care of the html generation automaticall. Jekyll is endorsed by Github and many github pages sites are made with Jekyll. There's tons of tutorials around, so this README will only provide instructions for getting started with jekyll and the post-writing workflow.

You'll need:

  • ruby
  • gem package manager (gem -v)
gem install bundler
