I am new to Jekyll and Github and web development in general.
I was able to successfully download Jekyll to my old Mac Book Pro and even was able to see my My Awesome Website in my browser. (It took a few tries).
Before I did this I didnt understand how it all worked and successfully made an html website in my github and when I try to implement the Hacker theme - of course it didnt work at all. I think i fiddled with the configuration file so i might have messed it up… not sure.
Then I realized I had to set up ruby and Jekyll in my system. So i have done all that now.
How can I get jekyll to apply that hacker theme to the html file already in github?
How can i make a new file in md and get it to work with Jekyll them in my free github site.
I don’t think you can apply a theme unless you have a jekyll site - so if you just created some html files on your own I don’t think GH can just apply a theme to it as plain html does not have a concept of a theme.
You’re kind of asking ‘how do use jekyll’ which is a little difficult to answer in a forum post.
Since you have jekyll working locally, try making a new file there and see how it goes.
The main jekyll site has a tutorial or there are lots on youtube. I didn’t really understand jekyll very well until I watched a bunch of tuts on Youtube. @BillRaymond has made a bunch lately:
the forum is best for when you are stuck on something specific - and then if you post what you tried and what errors you got and can post links to your site and your repo you can get lots of good help.
