Jekyll BoilerPack A minimalist boilerplate to get you started on a new Jekyll project quickly.

Jekyll BoilerPack

Last week I released a Jekyll boilerplate I call BoilerPack. After creating a few Jekyll projects I got tired of having to set everything up from scratch every time. It’s usually the same stuff that needs to be set in place, so I created Jekyll BoilerPack, a repo that contains all the usual boilerplate stuff to start a new Jekyll project.

BoilerPack comes pre-configured with the following tools so you can hit the ground running:

  • Bootstrap 3 (Sass port)
  • Font Awesome (loaded from CDN)
  • Autoprefixer
  • Grunt

It also has the following features right out of the box:

  • Static navbar
  • Sticky footer
  • Old-browser warning notification
  • Disabled-javascript notification
  • Site-wide custom notification
  • Dynamic go-to-top button

You’ll find detailed installation instructions and usage documentation on the GitHub repo. Feel free to copy and modify as you please. I hope it’s as useful to you as it’s been to me.

Cheers!
