Updated Website Theme

I’ve been working on rolling out this new theme in what feels like three minutes at a time for the last few weeks. Sometimes it feels like 24 hour days are not enough.

You can find this theme here: https://github.com/cotes2020/jekyll-theme-chirpy

I also recommend the static assets found here: https://github.com/cotes2020/chirpy-static-assets

Since I’m forced to use Windows now, I needed to make some small adjustments to the setup. I didn’t use the included setup script.

My condensed Windows 11 setup script:

1

8
git clone https://github.com/cotes2020/jekyll-theme-chirpy.git
cd jekyll-theme-chirpy
git submodule init
git submodule update
npm install -g win-node-env
npm i && npm run build
bundle update
bundle exec jekyll serve --livereload

I’ve made some changes to customize the feel. Nothing special, mostly fiddled around with the CSS a bit. As usual, everything is a work in progress.
