Basic Setup for a new Jekyll site



  1. Install Jekyll and read through this installation instructions if you haven't already.

  2. Fork the HMFAYSAL OMEGA Theme

  3. Clone the repo you just forked.

  4. Edit _config.yml to personalize your site.

  5. Check out the sample posts in _posts to see examples for pulling in large feature images, assigning categories and tags, and other YAML data.

  6. Read the documentation below for further customization pointers and documentation.


Pro-tip: Delete the gh-pages branch after cloning and start fresh by branching off master. There is a bunch of garbage in gh-pages used for the theme's demo site that I'm guessing you don't want on your site.
