A responsive theme for Jekyll

A responsive theme for Jekyll


Jackal is a very lightweight theme for Jekyll with a simplistic design.

Jackal stemmed from the redesign of this website. Going through the quirks of setting up a new website with Jekyll was enough for me to open source this starter template.

It features a straightforward home page, an about page, pagination, articles pages, portfolio section, RSS feed and responsive & great looking typography.

Jackal is cruft free meaning you get what you asked for and nothing more. Perfect for folks who just need a starter theme to work from.

Code available on Github.
