Quick Start

Before starting, please follow the instructions in the Jekyll Docs to complete the installation of Ruby, RubyGems, Jekyll, and Bundler. In addition, Git is also required to be installed.

Step 1. Creating a New Site

Create a new repository from the Chirpy Starter and name it <GH_USERNAME>.github.io, where GH_USERNAME represents your GitHub username.

Step 2. Installing Dependencies

Before running for the first time, go to the root directory of your site, and install dependencies as follows:

$ bundle

Step 3. Running Local Server

Run the following command in the root directory of the site:

$ bundle exec jekyll s

Or run with Docker:

$ docker run -it --rm \
    --volume="$PWD:/srv/jekyll" \
    -p 4000:4000 jekyll/jekyll \
    jekyll serve

After a while, navigate to the site at http://localhost:4000.

This theme is mainly built with Jekyll ecosystem, Bootstrap, Font Awesome and some other wonderful tools (their copyright information can be found in the relevant files). The avatar and favicon design come from Clipart Max.

🎉 Thanks to all the volunteers who contributed to this project, their GitHub IDs are on this list. Also, I won't forget those guys who submitted the issues or unmerged PR because they reported bugs, shared ideas, or inspired me to write more readable documentation.

Last but not least, thank JetBrains for providing the OSS development license.
