Experiments with Minimal Mistakes

less than 1 minute read

Yesterday I dedicated some time to investigate Minimal Mistakes. I would say that it well spent time - blog is running now on this theme.

In general theme works fine. The only problem which I had was a local building of the blog ;) I was facing following error:

Build Warning: Layout 'single' requested in _posts/2022-07-24-welcome-to-jekyll.markdown does not exist.

Not really helpful?

Under this link I have found following recipe:

Add to _config.yml:

  - jekyll-remote-theme

Add to Gemfile:

gem 'jekyll-remote-theme'


bundle update

Now everything should work as expected:

➜  bluszcz.github.io git:(main) bundle exec jekyll serve

Right now I am investigating Collections and Pages to incorporate some sort of Portfolio page.
