You're up and running!

Hello, World!

This is just a sample test to try to get Jekyll running. It follows Barry Clark’s walk through. A few additional gotchas I came across:

  1. HTML files are passed directly to the server and are not processed. This means that you cannot embed liquid tags in a HTML file that already has the <html> tag.
  2. Don’t forget the permalink tag in the header for top level files. This should have been obvious, but I overlooked it while moving files around.
  3. The title tag is set as an h1 in the output so don’t use another title (# title). It just looks silly.

I’m sure I will come across additional points as I move forward. I’ll probably try to update this post with additional comments in the future. But for now, time to start writing!
