Gem Version

A Jekyll theme that tries to be as clean as possible, and uses Basscss underneath.




Add the following lines to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "clean-jekyll-theme"

group :jekyll_plugins do
    gem "jekyll-seo-tag", "~> 2.2"

And add this line to your Jekyll site's _config.yml:

theme: clean-jekyll-theme

And configure the navigation items in _data/navigation.yml

- title: about
  url: /about
- title: twitter
- title: github

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install clean-jekyll-theme

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

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


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