A minimal example for running Github Pages with the minima theme.


This is a template and some instructions for running Github Pages with the minima theme. This repo has what I consider the minimum pieces for a personal blog using Jekyll and Github Pages:

  • Frontpage that includes your last blog posts: _pages/
  • Archive for all your posts: _pages/
  • About page: _pages/
  • Minimum 404 page: _pages/
  • Minimum metadata in the _config.yml
  • Example CSS change inside assets/main.scss
  • Custom footer template _includes/footer.html

Check out the excellent minima theme documentation for further details and customization and the official docs for more details on how Github Pages work.

For more details on how to set it up locally, create content, use Github interface, etc. feel free to visit this website post or the source code here.
