So Simple Jekyll theme

After having so much fun creating and releasing my first open source Jekyll theme, I figured I’d go at it again. So here be the fruit of that effort — I call it So Simple, a Jekyll theme for words and pictures.

  • A variety of layouts with clean and readable typography.
  • Microformats markup to make post content machine-readable and discoverable.
  • Disqus Comments and Google Analytics support.
  • SEO best practices via Jekyll SEO Tag.
  • Options to customize the theme and make it your own.
