Jekyll With Minimal Mistakes

This is my first foray into publishing with Jekyll. I chose the “minimal_mistakes” theme – because I liked the name (and the basica layout)

To initally get Jekyll and Ubuntu 18 to play nice:

sudo apt install ruby ruby-dev make build-essential tree

# .bashrc addon:
export GEM_HOME=$HOME/gems
export PATH=$HOME/gems/bin:$PATH

gem install jekyll bundler

jekyll new test

cd test

tree  # to see created structure

jekyll serve --watch

Then open http://localhost:4000 in a browser to see the results

minimal-mistakes theme also requires (on ubuntu)

sudo apt install zlib1g-dev
gem install nokogiri -v '1.8.2' --source ''

bundle update
bundle install
bundle exec jekyll serve
