This is a minimalistic blog scaffolding that is supposed to work out of
the box in [GitHub Pages][ghp]. En-passant, it's also another small blog that
I'm keeping around.
## Features
This relies heavily on [Jekyll][] and the [TextLog][] theme. In
particular, [this page][tl-examples] has examples of what formatting
capabilities are available.
In addition, [MathJax][] can also be enabled so that you can write
$\sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6}$ and also:
$$\sum_{i=0}^n i^2 = \frac{(n^2+n)(2n+1)}{6}$$
You can also look at [several formatting hints][mathjax-examples]. To
enable it, add `mathjax: true` in the front matter of the page (look at
the first lines of [about.md][about-md-raw] to see how).
## Get your own
If you want to replicate it:
- create an account on [GitHub][]
- clone [the repository][etoobusy-gh]
- adapt some files:
- `_config.yml` with the technical details of your blog
- `about.md` with a lenghtier description of your blog
- remove stuff in sub-directory `_posts`
- [enable GitHub Pages to publish your site from `master`][ghp-master]
(use the `master branch` alternative)
Now you can add your posts inside the `_posts` sub-directory (even in
[GitHub][] itself).
