Here's the source for my blog. At first this was based on Coffecomrade.com's weblog but since 2014 I have switched to Balzac (see footer of the site for links)


  • Obviously completely based off of Jekyll (v2)
  • Rake build system around it so compile other assets (SASS, etc) in a consistent manner
  • Rake integrated with git such that nothing EVER will be pushed to PROD without that being both in git and pushed to github.com
  • Integrated link checking (will spider the whole site on DEV and PROD builds so that you can not push internal links that result in 404's)
  • Tidy integration so that all pages' source code look good and well formatted
  • Entire VM around it so that you can reproduce this setup anywhere, anytime (quite handy for an infrequent blogger such as me)

So if you decide to make a derrivative work based on my stuff, do not reuse these.


For installation purporses (development, etc) I recommend to run

  $ git clone https://github.com/ojilles/jilles.net.git
  $ cd jilles.net
  $ vagrant up       # will kickoff provision, will take some time
  $ vagrant ssh
  $ cd /vagrant

Open your browser (on the host machine) to http://localhost:4000

This assumes you're running a ubuntu 12.04 image, newer most likely works as well. The image that is used and tested was downloaded here:
