Playing with Jekyll Ruby-Based Themes

As of July 2016, Jekyll v3.2.0 released support of versionable, first-class themes that were bundled as RubyGems. The process has been made incredibly intuitive for theme creators so I took a crack at some over an afternoon.

Because this was purely a creative exercise, I missed many considerations for responsiveness, accessibility, performance, and edge case usages. Certainly don’t take the code past face value. I had good fun and learned a bunch about Jekyll and packaging gems.

That being said, I did have some users install my gem theme anyways and send me great feedback. They were much appreciated and have helped Louie and Fry improve.
