The what for what?

Stately is a theme built for Jekyll, a static website generator. Jekyll allows you to transform plain text files into websites that can be hosted in a variety of ways, including for free on GitHub pages. Stately’s feature set, design patterns, and visual aesthetic, are geared toward goverment applications, but can be used for any purpose a static site may serve. Stately is open source, distributed by an MIT license, and can be contributed to on GitHub.
