The Grim Chronicle

Major Grim to ground control!

So, this is a website! After a lot of looking into different blog engines I have settled on Jekyll which makes things as simple as possible. Jekyll is what Github uses for it’s pages feature. It is a static site generator that takes what I have written and reads through the directives and puts together my HTML & CSS code based on that.

This post is just written in a markdown(.md) file as text with a note at the top that tells it to:

  1. Import the post layout
  2. Set the title to “Major Grim to ground control!” And
  3. Set the author to Grim. They are saved as variables and when Jekyll comes across a reference to that variable it just replaces it with the corresponding value. Relatively simple stuff.

Anyway, I am not done with the actual coding of this website this is just a basic & clean layout. I still need to add a page for my projects and a few more links at the bottom but soon enough it will all be here (hopefully)

// Grim.
