Lanyon is an unassuming Jekyll theme that places content first by tucking away navigation in a hidden drawer. It's based on Poole, the Jekyll butler.
Built on Poole
Poole is the Jekyll Butler, serving as an upstanding and effective foundation for Jekyll themes by @mdo. Poole, and every theme built on it (like Lanyon here) includes the following:
- Complete Jekyll setup included (layouts, config, 404, RSS feed, posts, and example page)
- Mobile friendly design and development
- Easily scalable text and component sizing with
rem units in the CSS
- Support for a wide gamut of HTML elements
- Related posts (time-based, because Jekyll) below each post
- Syntax highlighting, courtesy Pygments (the Python-based code snippet highlighter)
In addition to the features of Poole, Lanyon adds the following:
- Toggleable sliding sidebar (built with only CSS) via ☰ link in top corner
- Sidebar includes support for textual modules and a dynamically generated navigation with active link support
- Two orientations for content and sidebar, default (left sidebar) and reverse (right sidebar), available via
- Eight optional color schemes, available via
Head to the readme to learn more.
Lanyon is by preference a forward-thinking project. In addition to the latest versions of Chrome, Safari (mobile and desktop), and Firefox, it is only compatible with Internet Explorer 9 and above.
Lanyon is developed on and hosted with GitHub. Head to the GitHub repository for downloads, bug reports, and features requests.

Inline HTML elements
HTML defines a long list of available inline tags, a complete list of which can be found on the Mozilla Developer Network.
- To bold text, use
- To italicize text, use
- Abbreviations, like HTML should use
<abbr>, with an optional
title attribute for the full phrase.
- Citations, like — Mark otto, should use
Deleted text should use
<del> and text should use
- Superscript text uses
<sup> and subscript text uses
Most of these elements are styled by browsers with few modifications on our part.

Jekyll is a static site generator, an open-source tool for creating simple yet powerful websites of all shapes and sizes. From the project's readme:
Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory [...] and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server. This is also the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host your project’s page or blog right here from GitHub.
It's an immensely useful tool and one we encourage you to use here with Lanyon.
