I’m back on Jekyll! This time, I’ve decided to forgo Jekyll-bootstrap and just
go all natural (plain).
Just wanted to shoutout this post by David
Lynch who shared with us
his Jekyll blogging workflow which I found really useful.
Previously, on Jekyll Bootstrap, one has access
to a wide variety of rake tasks to help create and write new posts.
On plain vanilla, there isn’t any.
David’s implementation of a custom rake task seems to be the most easy to use
and customizable one out there for me.
1. Create a Rakefile in your Jekyll Root
You can view his Rakefile
2. Create a post template in /_posts/yyyy-mm-dd-template.markdown
You can use the
template he has provided as a starting point.
3. Rake away!
$ rake post['Blam!']
