Aemi theme, thought to mimic the Aemi WordPress Theme.

gem install aemi -v 1.1.5



aemi is a minimalist theme designed to mimic the Aemi WordPress Theme.

Put your layouts in _layouts, your includes in _includes, your sass files in _sass and any other assets in assets.

To experiment with this code, add some sample content and run bundle exec jekyll serve – this directory is setup just like a Jekyll site!


Add this line to your Jekyll site's Gemfile:

gem "aemi"

And add this line to your Jekyll site's _config.yml:

theme: aemi

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install aemi


Use it the same way you use Minima, it's based on it.

To set up your environment to develop this theme, run bundle install.

Your theme is setup just like a normal Jekyll site! To test your theme, run bundle exec jekyll serve and open your browser at http://localhost:4000. This starts a Jekyll server using your theme. Add pages, documents, data, etc. like normal to test your theme's contents. As you make modifications to your theme and to your content, your site will regenerate and you should see the changes in the browser after a refresh, just like normal.

When your theme is released, only the files in _layouts, _includes, _sass and assets tracked with Git will be bundled. To add a custom directory to your theme-gem, please edit the regexp in aemi.gemspec accordingly.


The theme is available as open source under the terms of the MIT License.
