I was recently introduced to bootstrap, and I want to practice using their classes a bit. So, I scrapped the default ‘minima’ theme that jekyll offers, and created this instead.

As of the time of this writing there are only about 60 lines of scss that I have wrote. Most of it is just colors and small tweaks here and there. It’s crazy how little you need to do to get a functioning site with bootstrap. That said, I noticed that the syntax highlighting on the web that came with the minima theme was no longer going to be available to me. To replace it, I found a site called highlightjs.org which not only provides easy to use syntax highlight, but a bunch of cool themes to choose from.

For example (2 in one here), this is all the code I needed to get a cool syntax highlighting theme.

<!-- highlight.js -->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/highlight.js/9.11.0/styles/darcula.min.css">
<script src="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/highlight.js/9.11.0/highlight.min.js"></script>

The first link to the stylesheet is where you can put the theme you want. They have alot of really cool ones.
