This is a travel blog theme I intend to use to document my outdoor adventures.
This was one of my first Jekyll themes.
I found Jekyll to be a wonderful static site generator system. I fell in love with its simplicity and power of customisation.
The site has the following features:
The MAP section was my favourite addition. It will show the locations I visited on a map and on clicking each marker, you can go to the post.
I had initially thought of using GoogleMaps Geocode API to plot places automatically, but the thing is the API has limitations of upto 10 requests per instance.
So I ended up making a python script to get me lattiude and longitude coordinates to specify in the YAML front matter. It can be found in my GitHub Repo.
This wasn’t the best theme I made, but I use it for my own travel site.
