How difficult it is to create your own jekyll theme?

I am currently trying to create a theme by myself.
But I have very little clue how difficult of this task can be.

How much of the content inside jekyll’s folder are generated by jeykll?
And how much work do I need to do?

I want my site have 3 layouts.

  1. Main. When you open the site, it will show you a list of all the articles.

  2. Individual Blog post

  3. An about page (optional)

From my understanding , I need to create separated HTML then use jekyll to link them together.

Is this correct?

You can find out yourself by running the following:

# suppose the theme's name is to be "zhoux"; then

$ jekyll new-theme zhoux
