Up is a clean and beautiful Bootstrap based layout for Jekyll.

This is designed to be an easy layout to modify for your own blog. It was based on zachholman’s blog themes: the “old” one, now opensourced as left, and also in his actual theme, that’s not opensource (I believe), but I steal some ideas anyway. I also took something from jekyll-bootstrap, and, of course, I’m using bootstrap as a base for all the thing.



You should have a server up and running locally at http://localhost:4000.


Next you’ll want to change a few things. The list of files you may want to change is the following:


You should deploy with GitHub Pages– it’s just easier.

All you should have to do is rename your repository on GitHub to be username.github.com. Since everything is on the gh-pages branch, you should be able to see your new site at http://username.github.com.


This is MIT with no added caveats, so feel free to use this on your site without linking back to me or using a disclaimer or anything silly like that.

If you’d like give me, holman (from left layout), plusjade (from jekyll-bootstrap), fat and mdo (from bootstrap) credit somewhere on your all-new blog or tweet a shout out to us, well hey, sure we’ll take it.
