Need to write in the head of the markdown, this is not a good way to write, I hope to get a better way to write on github.

``` md

title: Gallery

albums: [ ["img_url","img_caption"], ["img_url","img_caption"] ]


Use Tocbot to parse the title tags (h1~h6) in the content and insert the directory.

  • ayer/_config.yml

    # Toc
    toc: true
  • If Toc is turned on in ayer/_config.yml, then Tocbot will generate a Toc article directory in the title tag of each blog parsing content, but not all blogs require Toc, so in the Front-matter section of markdown Can be closed:

    no_toc: true


Ayer by Eric-Shen is licensed under SATA-License.

The basic idea is, whenever using a project using SATA license, people shall star/like/+1 that project and thank the author. Just imagine Google stared your project and send you a thank-you letter because they used your project in github!



  • 给你使用的开源项目的作者发个Email,和他交个朋友
  • 提出你在使用过程中发现的BUG或者提一些建设性的意见
  • 告诉你的朋友们这个开源项目碉堡了(博主: 就像我在宣传SATA)
  • 当然,你也可以只是在心里默默的感激,不用让全世界都知道
