gh-pages, then start editing the
I’ve integrated lots of nice Jekyll features into the theme, such as:
- Formspree.io contact form integration - just add your email to the
_config.yml and it works!
- Your social profiles are linked from usernames you enter in
_config.yml. Only social profiles buttons you enter in
config.yml show up on the site footer.
- Site logo support - Easily set any image or Font Awesome icon as your logo. If you enter a Font Awesome icon class in
_config.yml it will override the default image used as the site logo.
- Coming soon: Featured images and thumbnails in front matter for the homepage posts grid.
- Coming soon: Easy featured image settings in
_config.yml - choose to have Jekyll use a set height for featured images or have it display the entire image, pushing the page content further down.
If you would like to report a bug, ask a question, request a feature, feel free to do so on the GitLab repository and I will be more than happy to help!

This is Phantom, a simple design built around a grid of large, colorful, semi-interactive
image tiles (of which you can have as many or as few as you like). Makes use of some
SVG and animation techniques I've been experimenting with on that other project of mine
you may have heard about (https://carrd.co), and includes a handy generic page for whatever.
