jekyll-theme-bluelib

A theme providing Bluelib themes on Jekyll static sites!

Screenshot

Installation

Add this line to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "jekyll-theme-bluelib"

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

theme: jekyll-theme-bluelib

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install jekyll-theme-bluelib

After installing, add to _config.yml the name of your preferred bluelib theme:

bluelib: "royalblue"

Usage

The theme provides four layouts: default, base, box and post.

default

Default is the simplest layout of the four, and only adds the bluelib stylesheets for the theme to be displayed.

In particular, it <link>s in the following order:

  1. The skeleton.root.css from the latest version of bluelib
  2. The bluelib root target defined in the bluelib variable of _config.yml (site.bluelib)
  3. The bluelib root target defined in the bluelib variable of the Front Matter of the page (page.bluelib)
  4. The CSS files specified in the extra_css array of _config.yml (site.extra_css)

base

Base adds some elements to the default layout:

  • it adds a layout-threecol to the page
  • it centers the page contents by using layout-threecol-center
  • it renders the title defined in _config.yml as a <h1> element before the contents

box

Box wraps the contents of the page in a panel panel-box.

post

Post extends the box layout by adding the page.title to the top of the box, rendered as a <h2> element.

Development

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

Your 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.

When your theme is released, only the files in _layouts, _includes, _sass and assets tracked with Git will be bundled. To add a custom directory to your theme-gem, please edit the regexp in jekyll-theme-bluelib.gemspec accordingly.
