##Usage
This theme can be customized, built and published straight from GitHub, thanks to GitHub Pages. A local installation of Jekyll isn't even necessary!


Fork this repository to get started.


####Customize
Most general settings and data like site name, colors, address, etc. can be configured and changed right in the main config file: /_config.yml
The content of the Home page can be changed here: /home.html
The content of the About page can be changed here: /about.html
The content of the Portfolio page can be changed here:/portfolio.html
The content of the Contact page can be changed here:/contact.html


####Add content
Delete the demo content and publish your own content.

If there are problems with loading assets like CSS files and images, make sure that the baseurl in the _config.ymlis set correctly (it should say /repositoryname).


If you want to host your website somewhere else than GitHub (or just would like to customize and build your site locally), please check out the Jekyll documentation.
