MiniMagick integration for Jekyll
This gem allows you to easily use MiniMagick to crop and resize images in your Jekyll project, according to a preset defined in your config file.
Install the gem:
[sudo] gem install jekyll-minimagick
In a plugin file within your Jekyll project's _plugins directory:
# _plugins/my-plugin.rb require "jekyll-minimagick"
Define presets in your _config.yml file, like this:
# _config.yml mini_magick: thumbnail: source: img/photos/original destination: img/photos/thumbnail resize: "100x100" medium: source: img/photos/original destination: img/photos/medium resize: "600x400"
This configuration will create a 100x100 thumbnail for each image in img/photos/original and put it in _site/img/photos/thumbnail and a 600x400 image in _site/img/photos/medium.
Already using bundler to manage gems for your Jekyll project? Then just add
to your gemfile and create the following plugin in your projects _plugins directory. I've called mine bundler.rb. This will automatically require all of the gems specified in your Gemfile.
# _plugins/bundler.rb require "rubygems" require "bundler/setup" Bundler.require(:default)
