I’ve been thrown into web development as of recently.
I’m an absolute noob when it comes to web development, but I’m also a certified Asperger, so I realized I would never be satisfied without complete control and as long as I rely on sily interfaces. I literally spent hours over simple choices I can’t make. This is next level autism we’re talking. At least I’m aware it’s dumb.
So I choose jekyll.
But I’m still a noob.
Does someone has some experience with that, where to start ?
Can I upload my blogger site aspirated through httrack to keep the same look and then tweak the theme ?
Hard to do simpler than something like:
It was a sun cross originally, I’m not sure you would have noticed it, but I felt cheeky today
and you didn’t read the tagline, where I substituted “holocaust” for “holodomor” to annoy tankies. With more humor like this, people would not slaughter each others so often over senselss questions.
Thanks. I’ll read that, hoping I’ll find what I have in mind (posting texts in .md markdown files with other html files generated by a template, refering to them).
The only way to get complete control would be to write the whole thing by hand yourself, and not use Jekyll and the likes. Of course, I don’t recommend that.
And browse source code for some existing Jekyll sites. The default themes provided are good to start off.
Just some HTML + CSS to recreate the look. Jekyll only builds the site i.e. plug in variables and templates. You can technically create any look as long as you know the basic tools (HTML + CSS; maybe JS)
Indeed. After sticking with Jekyll for a while, I drifted away. I settled with Zola, thought Hugo is nice too.
I followed a basic css and html course, but I couldn’t understand a damn thing to jekyll.Thank you guys for zola, it seems straightforward and does take you step by step on their website.
Are there many themes ? Though I would prefer a basic one I can tweak, given how limited my needs are.
On the opposite “fully featured” tools are wholly out of my league.
