What is Jekyll

If you aren’t familiar with Jekyll yet, you should know that it is a static site generator. It will transform your plain text into static websites and blogs. No more databases, slow loading websites, the risk of being hacked, just your content! And not only that, with Jekyll you get free hosting with GitHub Pages! If you are a beginner we recommend you start with Jekyll’s Docs. Now if you know how to use Jekyll, let’s move on to using Mediumish template in Jekyll:

Using Mediumish In Jekyll

  • In your local project, open _config.yml. If your site is in root, for baseurl, make sure this is set to baseurl: /. Also, change your Google Analytics code, disqus username, authors, Mailchimp list etc.
  • Mediumish requires 2 plugins:
    • $ gem install jekyll-paginate
    • $ gem install jekyll-archives.
  • Edit the menu and footer copyrights in default.html
  • Start by adding your .md files in _posts. Mediumish already has a few as an example.
  • YAML front matter
