I’ve not touched the Jekyll PWA Starter in a while but I’m starting it back up. First thing is the creation of a clean branch to start from. If you clone the master branch you end up with a whole bunch of content that you don’t want or need so you can now clone a clean branch that has most of cruft removed.
To clone the clean branch run the following command in you Terminal:
git clone -b clean --single-branch https://github.com/dumaurier/pwa_jekyll.git
This still has a few example posts for each post type but it’s easier to get rid of them and start with your own stuff.
I’m going to add a few things to the starter over the next week or so. An incomplete list (meaning the things that I remember I want to add) are:
- Option in the `data/about.yml` file to toggle on/off Web Mentions
- ‘Deploy with Netlify’ button as described here: https://www.netlify.com/docs/deploy-button/
- Add option to use Bootstrap for anyone that doesn’t want to bother writing their own CSS
- Streamline process to add IndieWeb microformats and WebMentions integration
I should note, tangentially, that I keep playing with other Jekyll-esque static site generators and none of them are as much fun to use as Jekyll. Though I will concede that Next.js is quite lovely.
