My Jekyll notes
Creating and Editing a New Post
Just use my newpost.rb script to create a new post in _posts. Then use MultiMarkdown Composer to edit the post.
I finally figured out that the categories metadata in the header of each post can specify the path to the final post. For example, suppose I define categories in the metadata to have the two ordered values:
categories: activities french
If I have specified in my _config.yml file that the permalink has the structure
then I will get paths that look like
Generate the site
gitm:~/Dropbox/ge/george.entenman.name $ jekyll build Configuration file: /Users/ge/Dropbox/ge/george.entenman.name/_config.yml Source: /Users/ge/Dropbox/ge/george.entenman.name Destination: ./ge.github.io Generating... done.
I believe it was working for awhile. But now the server (WEBrick) starts, but nothing is served and I can’t find any log files that might explain what’s happening. I’ve reinstalled jekyll.

Most of the layout is defined by _layouts/default.html. This includes _layouts/post.html, which can be very simple.
