I Made a Website

tags: Jekyll · Liquid · Sass

After making a few simple sites on github pages to document some of my projects, I wanted to make a site to display them all together. First I learned about the gh-pages interface, then Jekyll, then Liquid, then Sass…

To make my own site, I started with a nice bootstrap template that was meant for a single-page resume. I took the HTML file, hollowed it out, and turned it into a structure suitable for use with Jekyll.

Jekyll allowed me to create templates which could be used to dynamically generate HTML pages from content in simple text files, such as this one.
