You can (and should) edit the
.html files for adding your own information, icons, working experience, social links or whatever you want to add by editing the content of the markdown files in the cloned directory. I.e.:
To edit the header/ footer, navigate to the _includes directory and edit the header.html / footer.html according to your choice.
In order to compile the assets open the terminal in the cloned directory and follow those steps:

- If you receive errors while following steps 1 or 2, run
bundle installor if, this doesn't work, re-install the ruby dev kit and jekyll.
- If you changed the port in the config_yml file, the address in step 3 above would have to changed accordingly.
