My Free Minimalist Jekyll Themes

Jekyll theme is a template for the best static site generator called Jekyll, which is written in Ruby by Tom Preston-Werner, GitHub’s co-founder. Jekyll is designed for building minimal, static blogs which you can easily host it with free using GitHub Pages. Few years ago I was using a self-hosted WordPress for my blog, but due to I have been blogging occasionally, I moved to Jekyll which suits me better. Of course, you need some geeky knowledge about it before you can set up your Jekyll site. I also made few minimalist Jekyll themes myself for FREE and open source. Here they are…
