Usage


BlackDoc is a theme built on top of Poole, which provides a fully furnished Jekyll setup—just download and start the Jekyll server. See the Poole usage guidelines for how to install and use Jekyll.


Options


BlackDoc includes some customizable options, typically applied via classes on the <body> element.



Create a list of nav links in the sidebar by assigning each Jekyll page the correct layout in the page's front-matter.


---
layout: page
title: About
---

Why require a specific layout? Jekyll will return all pages, including the atom.xml, and with an alphabetical sort order. To ensure the first link is Home, we exclude the index.html page from this list by specifying the page layout.


Scrolling sidebar content


By default, BlackDoc includes a scrolling sidebar that will display your markdown files in alphabetical order.


Themes


BlackDoc ships with eight optional themes based on the base16 color scheme. Apply a theme to change the color scheme (mostly applies to sidebar and links).


To use a theme, add anyone of the available theme classes to the <body> element in the default.html layout, like so:


<body class="theme-base-08">
...
</body>

To create your own theme, look to the Themes section of included CSS file. Copy any existing theme (they're only a few lines of CSS), rename it, and change the provided colors.


Reverse layout
