Jekyll is a static site generator. In this tutorial, I will explain how to /create a new website using Jekyll and the KDE Jekyll theme.

Local installation

You will need to install gem. In Arch Linux the package name is gemrb.

After this you can install Bundler and Jekyll with gem

gem install bundler jekyll
jekyll new my-awesome-site^C
cd my-awesome-site
bundle install --path vendor/bundle

With this you get the standard Jekyll theme, we will now switch to the beautiful Aether theme.

In Gemfile, you can replace the content with:

source "https://rubygems.org"

gem "jekyll", "~> 3.8"
gem "jekyll-kde-theme"

and in _config.yml, change the value from theme to jekyll-kde-theme and remove the plugin field.

You can now update the ruby dependencies and download the jekyll theme:

bundle update

Now create the file css/main.scss with:

# Only the main Sass file needs front matter (the dashes are enough)

@charset "utf-8";

@import "base.scss";
@import "social.scss";
@import "glyphs.scss";
@import "download.scss";
@import "home.scss";

and index.html with


You should now see something like this:


You can now add a screenshot of you app in /assets/img/screenshot.png and a icon in /assets/img/app_icon.png.
