Stately is a Jekyll theme built with Liquid templating, Sass, and a sprinkle of Javascript. It is distributed as a Ruby gem, or on GitHub.

Getting started

To use Stately on your site, install the Ruby Gem and update your _config.yml file to use the theme:

  1. Add this line to your Jekyll site’s Gemfile:
    gem "stately-jekyll"

    or install it globally with:

    $ gem install stately-jekyll
  2. Then, add this line to your Jekyll site’s _config.yml file:
    theme: stately-jekyll
  3. Install the Gem and dependancies if you are using a Gemfile:
    $ bundle
  4. Start your local Jekyll server:
    $ bundle exec jekyll serve


    $ jekyll serve
  5. Point your web browser to http://localhost:4000

See Configuration for instructions on how to edit your _config.yml to configure Stately’s custom features.
