There are two ways to setup this theme:

Fork this repository or download the source as a zip.

If you use as destination a repository named, then your url will be

Otherwise (let's say myblog), you need to edit the 'baseurl' parameter in _config.yml. In this case, the root page will be served to "".

# set baseurl as "/<repo-name>". ex) baseurl: /myblog
baseurl: /myblog

Method 2: Utilize Gem package

Create a clean site directory (Follow the Instruction 1~4 described here).

The following materials are redundant, so remove them.

  • index.markdown
  • about.markdown

Then, add this line to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "jekyll-theme-satellite"

You need to replace the initial _config.yml file with the prepared one.

Modify your site setting

Now fill in the site variable such as blog name, profile image, and social accounts in _config.yml.

description: "Satellite - jekyll blog theme"
logo_img: "/assets/img/favicon.webp"
profile_img: "/assets/img/profile.jpg"

# Social Links
email: [email protected]
github_username: github
twitter_username: twitter
instagram_username: instagram
linkedin_username: linkedin
facebook_username: facebook

Run site locally

From the site root directory, install the dependencies:

bundle install

Start a Jekyll service.

bundle exec jekyll serve

Now open http://localhost:4000 in your browser.
