Modifications

A few things added/removed:

  • Code block syntax highlight (Using prism and monokai theme)
  • Fork Awesome fonts
  • Landing page with icon links
    • To use the links head over to your settings/code injection
    • in site header add your links as such:
      <script>
        // Link {service: service-name (fork awesome icon (i.e for an icon 'fa fa-github' just put 'github')), href: url}
        const landing_page_links = [
            {service: 'envelope', href:'[email protected]'},
            {service: 'github', href:'https://www.github.com/username'},
            ....
        ];
      </script>
      

      you can add as many links as you want. but the larger the list, it might not be responsive.

  • 404 page. to change the image in the 404 page - overwrite the file in assets/404-face.png (The name matters)
  • A custom rss page (no feedly)
  • removed the default social links
  • custom routs.yaml - Go to settings/Labs and upload the routs.yaml file from this repo. (All blog posts will be under route /writings)

How do i use this theme?

Download/clone the repo and just compress it into a zip file. Then under Settings/Design Upload your new theme.

Note: You must upload the routes.yaml included in order for this theme to work properly

First time using a Ghost theme?

Ghost uses a simple templating language called Handlebars for its themes.

This theme has lots of code comments to help explain what's going on just by reading the code. Once you feel comfortable with how everything works, we also have full theme API documentation which explains every possible Handlebars helper and template.

The main files are:

  • default.hbs - The parent template file, which includes your global header/footer
  • index.hbs - The main template to generate a list of posts, usually the home page
  • post.hbs - The template used to render individual posts
  • page.hbs - Used for individual pages
  • tag.hbs - Used for tag archives, eg. "all posts tagged with news"
  • author.hbs - Used for author archives, eg. "all posts written by Jamie"

One neat trick is that you can also create custom one-off templates by adding the slug of a page to a template file. For example:

  • page-about.hbs - Custom template for an /about/ page
  • tag-news.hbs - Custom template for /tag/news/ archive
  • author-ali.hbs - Custom template for /author/ali/ archive

Development

Casper styles are compiled using Gulp/PostCSS to polyfill future CSS spec. You'll need Node, Yarn and Gulp installed globally. After that, from the theme's root directory:

# install dependencies
yarn install

# run development server
yarn dev

Now you can edit /assets/css/ files, which will be compiled to /assets/built/ automatically.

The zip Gulp task packages the theme files into dist/<theme-name>.zip, which you can then upload to your site.

# create .zip file
yarn zip

PostCSS Features Used

  • Autoprefixer - Don't worry about writing browser prefixes of any kind, it's all done automatically with support for the latest 2 major versions of every browser.
  • Variables - Simple pure CSS variables
  • Color Function

SVG Icons

Casper uses inline SVG icons, included via Handlebars partials. You can find all icons inside /partials/icons. To use an icon just include the name of the relevant file, eg. To include the SVG icon in /partials/icons/rss.hbs - use {{> "icons/rss"}}.

You can add your own SVG icons in the same manner.
