Israh Theme for Jekyll

Israh is a responsive Jekyll theme with warm greys, a single column layout, and not much else.

This theme is an evolution of my Ezora jekyll theme that reflects my own changing tastes. Most notably, Israh takes the focus off of header images so I don't have to find them for posts that don't need them.

Try Israh

Feel free to use this theme however you like (MIT License).



Just fork this repository and add your own content =).


Like Ezora, Israh uses a fairly minimal set of layouts and sass. Width/height values are all defined in the top of css/main.scss as variables, so you don't have to hunt too far through the SCSS to tweak things.

The navigation menu is generated from the list of links in _config.yml.
