A friend of mine writes short stories. One sunny day, I asked if he wanted a website to showcase his works and he agreed. I decided to use GitHub Pages to host his site. That way he wouldn’t have to buy a domain and a server.

While doing some research up on GitHub Pages, I accidentally chanced upon this simple, blog-aware, static site generator called Jekyll which works really well with GitHub Pages. I figured it would do just fine for my friend and I set about searching for a pretty theme. I wanted a theme with a book-ish vibe. Unfortunately, most of the themes were too modern. Eventually, I caved and begun working on my own theme. With the help of Poole, the Jekyll Butler, I was able to build Tale.
