Minimal Mistakes Jekyll Theme
Minimal Mistakes Jekyll Theme
Minimal Mistakes is a flexible two-column Jekyll theme. Perfect for hosting your personal site, blog, or portfolio on GitHub or self-hosting on your own server. As the name implies — styling is purposely minimalistic to be enhanced and customized by you .

The theme includes responsive layouts (
splash pages) that look great on mobile and desktop browsers.

Having trouble working with the theme? Found a typo in the documentation? Interested in adding a feature or fixing a bug? Then by all means submit an issue or pull request. If this is your first pull request, it may be helpful to read up on the GitHub Flow first.
Minimal Mistakes has been designed as a base for you to customize and fit your site’s unique needs. Please keep this in mind when requesting features and/or submitting pull requests. If it’s not something that most people will use, I probably won’t consider it. When in doubt ask.
This goes for author sidebar links and “share button” additions – I have no intention of merging in every possibly option, the essentials are there to get you started .
To help me out try to avoid creating pull requests on
master and instead branch off of
develop. It’s much easier for me to test, merge, and roll them into new releases this way.

- jQuery Smooth Scroll
