The following instructions where originally written and included by aksakalli as part of his jekyll-doc-theme. I am keeping this content here to help me, as I further extent this site, and for any others that it may help. Thank you aksakalli.
Getting started with GitHub Pages
GitHub Pages can automatically generate and serve the website for you.
Let’s say you have a username/organisation
my-org and project
my-proj; if you locate Jekyll source under
docs folder of master branch in your repo
github.com/my-org/my-proj, the website will be served on
The good thing about coupling your documentation with the source repo is, whenever you merge features with regarding content to master branch, it will also be published on the webpage instantly.
- Just download the source from github.com/aksakalli/jekyll-doc-theme into your repo under
- Edit site settings in
_config.ymlfile according to your project. !!!
baseurlshould be your website’s relative URI like
img/logonav.pngwith your own logo.
Docs are collections of pages stored under
_docs folder. To create a new page:
1. Create a new Markdown as
_docs/my-page.md and write front matter & content such as:
--- title: My Page permalink: /docs/my-page/ --- Hello World!
2. Add the pagename to
_data/docs.yml file in order to list in docs navigation panel:
- title: My Group Title docs: - my-page
Add a new Markdown file such as
2017-05-09-my-post.md and write the content similar to other post examples.
The homepage is located under
index.html file. You can change the content or design completely different welcome page for your taste. (You can use bootstrap components)
In order to add a new page, create a new
.md (markdown) file under root directory and link it in
