Solar: A Jekyll Theme Based on the Solarized Color Palette

I’ve been having fun playing around with Jekyll and Ruby lately, which has lead to a sudden increase in the number of repositories on my GitHub profile. After converting my personal blog and porting its theme over, I thought it would be fun to build a fresh theme and release it to the public.

Without further ado, I would like to introduce Solar, a theme I based upon the Solarized color palette. It includes stylesheets for both Solarized Dark and Solarized Light, since the colors are defined separately from the page structure. It’s responsive, all the way down to mobile size, and it’s built with link-blogging in mind.
