I had been exploring Jekyll for quite sometime. I simply followed the below traditional, developer like approach - download Ruby download Jekyll play around with platform capabilities - focus on Liquid see how themes are created However, I realised mid-way that select themes offer a good way for anyone to get started.
I am a developer (or an imposter who thinks he is a developer). A developer has to figure out solutions to problems, and sometimes carry the rest of the humanity along for the ride. I am unique in that - rest of the developers do that 99.99xxx99% of the time, and I fill in the gap.
I have written less than five eBooks in my life. I used Amazon to self-publish the book and have it for sale for two weeks now. The above statements by themselves should be a good indicator of how much I know about the topic of selling eBooks. But, I being me, cannot really “not write” about my fantastic research in the two weeks hence.
I had been searching for modern but clean looking themes for one of my older Blogs. I had been using Sahifa earlier. Although the theme is good and does its job, Sahifa is not really pleasing to the eye. This is my opinion, of course. The way I see websites and Blogs has changed over time (hopefully for the good), and Sahifa did not fit the definition of a “clean”, “minimal” theme.
I had been a fan of LeanPub. The platform promises easy book authoring using Markdown, and distribute the book to a hungry audience. However, I am not a big fan of how Markdown is processed in LeanPub. Markua, the flavor (created &) preferred by LeanPub, is not completely aligned to how GitHub and others process the Markdown.
If you are like me: you will be creating dime-a-dozen websites that no one is going to read. .. or, care about. If you are like me, you would want to do that anyway. because.. why the hell not? All my websites (almost, all) have a logo associated. I am no designer and creating logos is a pain in the neck.
I was setting up content for a professional training company that I consult for. We have to do “something different” as compared to many others in the space. One such idea was to setup a closed user group for the course students. The said forum will enable students to discuss the course, ask questions, and connect with other students/faculty.
