Jekyll archive page (without plugins)
I got round to putting up an archive page for reyhan.org and thought I’d jot some notes down for anybody who else who wanted to do the same.
GitHub runs Jekyll with:
jekyll --pygments --no-lsi --safe
--safe flag disables custom plugins which means if you’re going to run your blerg through GitHub Pages you won’t be able to use custom plugins, for example, this one.
There are ways around this, namely generating your blerg locally then publishing just contents of the
_site folder to your
gh-pages branch but being me, a lazy developer, this sounds like more hassle than it’s worth, especially when I have a nice workflow for creating a new blog post, having it all in one repo and having GitHub do all the heavy lifting.
Jekyll is awesome — I should probably list the ways one day ↩

Anyhoo, to get my Archive page crackingbut I didn’t think I could get away with it. ↩
If you look at the actual
archive.htmltemplate in my repo, you’ll notice that the indentation is somewhat odd. This is because when I view source I like to see properly indented markup. It’s just how I roll. ↩
