Introduction to Jekyll!

You’ll find this post in your _posts directory - edit this post and re-build (or run with the -w switch) to see your changes! To add new posts, simply add a file in the _posts directory that follows the convention: YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.ext.

We’ve also added a lot of different settings for Redcarpet, including being able to superscript, underline, highlight, strikethrough, and footnotes.[1] It even automatically makes links into URLs: and you can put multiple underscores in words without them leaning all over the place: this_word_has_underscores. It’ll also make your quotes look nice, like this: “hoho”, your dashes and hypens will be dashing too: —/–.

Jekyll also offers powerful support for code snippets:

def print_hi(name)
  puts "Hi, #{name}"
#=> prints 'Hi, Tom' to STDOUT.
