{ Personal } Jekyll Theme

{ Personal } is a free responsive blog with minimal aesthetic, about you. You can watch it live here.

Deploy on Github Pages for free

Fork the repository and:

  1. Rename the forked repository to yourusername.github.io
  2. Update the url in _config.yml to be yourusername.github.io
  3. Commit the changes and after the Github Action of your commit succeeds, you should see your website at https://yourusername.github.io

How to run locally

You can use Docker to run the website to avoid installing any dependencies to your local environment. To do so, run:

docker-compose up --build

Alternatively, you can run the website locally by installing ruby and then installing the project dependencies by running:

make install

And then start serving the website:

jekyll serve --watch --host --config _config.yml,_config.dev.yml


The theme contains documentation in the form of blog posts.
