Use this website as a template for your academic research group

This website is powered by Jekyll and uses some Bootstrap and Bootswatch. We tried to make it simple yet adaptable, so that it is easy for you to re-use it for your purpose.

Getting started

All pages are written in markdown for easy editing, and Jekyll uses Liquid for the data-driven pages. The publicaion list, news items, and group members are stored as .yml data sheets (plain text) in the _data folder, so that one can update the website easily. The pages are in the _pages folder. Updating and maintaining is easy using Github (not worldpress-easy, but there are other advantages (see e.g. this, or this). Jekyll takes all the markdown and data files, and creates beautiful html files in the _site folder.

If you never used Jekyll, read the wikipedia article article and check out their website. Same for Github, which will host your first website draft.
