Good Clean Read

A Jekyll template for publishing single-page websites and articles that are incredibly readable and fully responsive

Nice, clean, reading!

Good clean read is set up with readability first in mind. Whatever you want to communicate here can be read easily, and without distraction. Of course, it’s fully responsive, which means people can read it naturally on any phone, or tablet. Write it in markdown in index.md and get a beautifully published piece.

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

With footnotes too!

Back up your stuff with solid, clean citations. Footnotes can be written in markdown and appear like this.1 Use as many as you like.2

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Add social sharing buttons

Simply add the following line anywhere in your markdown:


{% include sharing.html %}

and get a nice responsive sharing ribbon.

Add this at the bottom, or the top, or between every other paragraph if you’re desprate for social validation.

Just remember to customize the buttons to fit your url in the _includes/sharing.html file. These buttons are made available and customizable by the good folks at kni-labs. See the documentation at https://github.com/kni-labs/rrssb for more information.

Font awesome is also included

Now you can use all the cool icons you want! Font Awesome is indeed awesome. But wait, you don’t need this sweetness and you don’t want that little bit of load time from the font awesome css? No problem, just disable it in the config.yml file, and it won’t be loaded.

If you need them, you can stick any of the 605 icons anywhere, with any size you like. (See documentation)

        

Add images to make your point

Images play nicely with this template as well. Add diagrams or charts to make your point, and the template will fit them in appropriately.
