Website hosted from my Github Repository
It is using Github Pages.
Create a repository called username.github.io, where username is your username (or organization name) on GitHub and put your website files in there.
Website generation using a Python framework: Nikola
This website is using Nikola which is a Python static website generator.
Assuming that you have created a github repository called username.github.io, clone it with:
git clone [email protected]:username/username.github.io.git
Then initialize your website with this command:
nikola init username.github.io
where username.github.io is the repository you have just cloned.
cd in this directory and execute this command:
nikola build && nikola serve -b
The website will open at the url http://127.0.0.1:8000.
To deploy to Github, change the file conf.py such as:
GITHUB_DEPLOY_BRANCH = 'master'
Once you are happy with it, you can deploy to Github with the command:
Posts written using reStructuredText

This is also a way to learn how to use Vim. Since Nikola 7.0.1, you can use the -e option when creating a new post.
But before, you need to set up a default editor.
If you want to use vim, you can first locate it:
Then you can use it in the export variable:
Download a pre-built template from bootswatch
nikola bootswatch_theme -n custom_theme -s spruce -p bootstrap3
pip install nikola
If you have the following error while installing nikola:
** make sure the development packages of libxml2 and libxslt are installed **
You can fix it with:
sudo apt-get install libxslt1-dev libxslt1.1 libxml2-dev libxml2 libssl-dev
Since Nikola can be installed with Pip, you can use the following command:
pip install -U nikola
To install pip, see http://pip.readthedocs.org/en/latest/installing.html
If you have the following error:
Python.h: No such file or directory
You can fix it with:
sudo apt-get install python-dev
To upgrade pip:
sudo easy_install -U pip
To downgrade pip to a previous version:
sudo easy_install pip==1.2.1
