Let’s jump straight to it
First, you’ll need to create a new repository in Github following the formatusername.github.io. It’ll need at least an
index.html, then you will be able to publish as a Github page. Documentation helps too.
Choosing a theme
There are several ways to pretty up your github page. Github comes with a few Jekyll themes you can choose from. Try them out by going to Settings in your repo tab, and select Choose a theme
Choose a theme you like and Select theme.
Alternative way - Use a template
Fork the theme and rename it to your username.github.io, then modify it as much as you like.
Setting up _config.yml
Some dependencies have been deprecated in Jekyll 3.0, so you’ll have to make sure the
_config.yml is working as it should. A good template/theme will allow you to change variables easily in 1 config file.
it should look something like this:
# Dependencies markdown: kramdown highlighter: rouge # Permalinks permalink: pretty # Setup title: Jellene Khoh tagline: description: 'Mashpotato & Rye' url: https://jellene4eva.github.io baseurl: / author: name: 'jellene4eva' url: https://jellene4eva.github.io paginate: 5 # Custom vars version: 0.0.1 github: https://github.com/jellene4eva linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jellene-khoh-297571a3/
Aaaannnddd that should be it. Lycka till, happy typing!
