Like the simple blog layout "Here are some of the main components that I used: Standard boilerplate from Tom Preston-Warner himself, with pagination. Category generation plugin from Recursive Design. Disqus for comments. I don't really buy into the whole argument against using Disqus for static sites (that it defeats the purpose of having a static site). RSS feed template from Recursive Design. All of the templates and styles are handwritten. Being able to customize all aspects of the blog is definitely one of the major perks of using Jekyll!" #ideas #ruby #Jekyll #blogs #layouts #sexy #web_design #pub
