Jekyll Themes

Installation

The themes found in Jekyll Themes can be used in two ways.

1. Github Pages

This is the easiest way to use Jekyll Themes as it doesn’t require any Command Line Interface.

Step 1: Fork the theme

The first step is to fork the theme. But make sure you are logged in to Github. If you do not have an account, then please sign up for one.

Step 2: Change the source

After forking the theme, you will see the whole repository copied to your account. Open the repository, go to settings, find Github Pages section and select which branch should be used as the source (usually master).

Step 3: That’s it!

Your theme should be hosted and the URL will be shown in the Github Pages section. It is usually <username>.github.io/<repository-name>/ .

2. Local

This method helps you see the changes locally before pushing the site online.

Step 1: Download the theme

Choose a theme, click on it and click on Download. Extract the files into a folder.

Step 2: Serve!

Open Command Line Interface, navigate to the folder where you’ve extracted all the files and use jekyll serve to serve the site locally on http://127.0.0.1:4000/.
