The Plain

The Plain is a minimalist Jekyll theme, ideally designed for your personal blog use. This Jekyll theme provides a minimum distraction so you can focus on writing that matters to you and your readers. This theme is originally inspired from Leonard Lamprecht's leo theme.

SCREENSHOT

Usage

On an unlimited Jekyll host

NOTE This does NOT work on GitHub, see the next section.

Put this in your Gemfile:

gem 'the-plain'

and run

bundle install
to install the plugin.

Add this to your sites _config.yml file:

theme: the-plain

Then copy some of the settings from this repo's _config.yml file to your own, and modify them.

On GitHub

GitHub - for your user account pages or repository gh-pages - only supports a limited set of themes.

Therefore, you need to use the 'remote_theme:' setting instead of 'theme:', which is supported by a 3rd party plugin.

Put this in your Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-remote-theme'

and run

bundle install
to install the plugin.

Add the following to your site's _config.yml to activate the plugin and to select this theme:

plugins:
  - jekyll-remote-theme

remote_theme: heiswayi/the-plain

This will grab the theme directly from the GitHub repo.

Now copy some of the settings from this repo's _config.yml file to your own, and modify them.
