To set up your environment to develop this theme, run bundle install.

The theme is setup just like a normal Jekyll site! To test the theme, run bundle exec jekyll serve and open your browser at http://localhost:4000. This starts a Jekyll server using the theme. Add pages, documents, data, etc. like normal to test the theme's contents. As you make modifications to the theme and to the content, your site will regenerate and you should see the changes in the browser after a refresh, just like normal.

When the theme is released, only the files in _layouts, _includes, _sass and assets tracked with Git will be bundled. To add a custom directory to the theme-gem, please edit the regexp in just-the-cards.gemspec accordingly.


The theme is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.
