Welcome to Jekyll!

You’ll find this post in your _posts directory. Go ahead and edit it and re-build the site to see your changes. You can rebuild the site in many different ways, but the most common way is to run jekyll serve, which launches a web server and auto-regenerates your site when a file is updated.

Jekyll requires blog post files to be named according to the following format:


Where YEAR is a four-digit number, MONTH and DAY are both two-digit numbers, and MARKUP is the file extension representing the format used in the file. After that, include the necessary front matter. Take a look at the source for this post to get an idea about how it works.

Jekyll also offers powerful support for code snippets:

def print_hi(name)
  puts "Hi, #{name}"
#=> prints 'Hi, Tom' to STDOUT.
\[\sqrt{a^2 + b^2} + \int_{1}^{2} x^2 dx\]
public void ChangeScene(int sceneIndex)
#include <iostream>

using std;

int main()
  auto x = 1;

  int* ptr = new int[10];
  delete ptr;
  ptr = nullptr;
class A < B; def self.create(object = User)
class Zebra; def inspect; "X#{2 + self.object_id}"

module ABC::DEF
  include Comparable

  # @param test
  # @return [String] nothing
  def foo(test)
    Thread.new do |blockvar|
      ABC::DEF.reverse(:a_symbol, :'a symbol', :<=>, 'test' + test)

  def [](index) self[index] end
  def ==(other) other == self end

anIdentifier = an_identifier
Constant = 1
render action: :new
