Jekyll Theme Showcase! - Share your Jekyll themes

Have you built a Jekyll theme you’re proud? Then share it here! :rainbow:

Just use the following format:

Name - https://link-to-example-site-or-repository.url

A brief description of your theme, what it’s about and any interesting things your learned while making it.

Link to the repo (if applicable) -

Please follow the format above as best as you can, that way if someone from the Jekyll Community wants to create an official showcase page it’ll be a little easier to populate.

Beautiful Jekyll

Build a beautiful and simple website in literally minutes

This theme is meant to be extremely easy to use so that even web noobs can use it, while still looking clean and having lots of customizable parameters. The documentation is very detailed and thorough and assumes no previous knowledge. It focuses on GitHub-pages-first so that it’s very simple to create a beautiful jekyll theme directly on the web using GitHub Pages, but also has instructions for how to use it locally with ruby.

Modern Resume Theme

Demo -
A modern static resume template and theme. Powered by Jekyll and GitHub pages.
Source repo -

I have tried to create a very simple to use single page resume theme and template. It has some very simple instructions to build and host on GitHub pages that hopefully anyone can follow.
It’s still fairly basic in terms of the content and layout options, but I am going to continue to create these and make it suitable for everyone.
