Jekyll conversion of Halcyonic

For a dutch blog I was searching for a nice template. Since I’m recently switched from WordPress to Jekyll it had to be a Jekyll template. Soon I realized that I could use a Jekyll ready template, but I could also convert a generic template.

So, that’s what I did. I converted a template from HTML5 UP, named “Halcyonic”. I downloaded it from HTML5up and split it into multiple pieces.
"Halcyonic"

Note however that this is a basic break up. Only the basic layout has been converted. Not everything has been converted to datafiles. Also, no new functionality has been added. if you want to use RSS feeds, integration of analytics of some kind or something else, you need to do that yourself.

Download Jekyll-Halcyonic now.

After the break there is more technical content about the template.
