A Jekyll plugin for generating author archives for posts

Jekyll Author Plugin

We had a simple custom requirement while using Jekyll for our old website @multunus. We wanted to group blog posts by author name. Hence, we came up with this quick small plugin for Jekyll.


  • Create a listing page for "posts by author".
  • Adds a link to the author for listing
  • Now it supports Octopress!


  • Clone the repository
  • Copy the author_generator.rb file to the plugins directory
  • Copy the files under _includes to the _includes directory
  • Copy the files under _layouts directory to the _layouts directory
  • To customize the look and feel, change the author_index.html in the _layouts directory.
