About the Jekyll Theme

Reading time ~1 minute

They say three times the charm, so here is another free responsive Jekyll blog theme for you. I’ve learned a ton since open sourcing my first two themes on Github, and wanted to try a few new things this time around.

If you’ve used any of my other themes most of this should be familiar territory…

What HPSTR brings to the table:

  • Responsive templates for post, page, and post index
    . Looks great on mobile, tablet, and desktop devices.
  • Gracefully degrads in older browsers. Compatible with Internet Explorer 8+ and all modern browsers.
  • Modern and minimal design.
  • Sweet animated menu.
  • Background image support.
  • Readable typography to make your words shine.
  • Support for large images to call out your favorite posts.
  • Built-in support for Sass courtesy of Jekyll 2.x.
  • Optional Disqus comments.
  • Simple and clear permalink structure1.
  • Open Graph and Twitter Cards support for a better social sharing experience.
  • Simple custom 404 page to get you started.
  • Stylesheets for Pygments and Coderay syntax highlighting to make your code examples look snazzy.
