Blogging with Jekyll


I’ve had two blogs kicking around on blogger.com since around 2004 - tardate and pratalife. I decided to try porting and combining them on GitHub Pages using Jekyll.

This is the result, hosted on GitHub in this repository. If you notice styling glitches on older posts, it is likely due to an imperfect migration that I haven’t cleaned up yet.

I started out using the built-in minima theme, but subsequently switched to largely borrow most of the pixyll.com template as it offers a very good mix of pre-configured features useful for a blog (responsive design, social integration).

My notes on Jekyll investigation and a series of tests are on LittleCodingKata.
