A new Nikola's theme for my site: Zen

  |   Source   |   Minimap

Some days ago, Aru Sahni wrote to Nikola's forum and posted a link to his site... I really like the theme he was using so I though to take it as a starting point to develop my own theme.

I had to re-wrote some things to accommodate the templates to the last Nikola v6.0.0 release (in fact, I usually use master from Github, but I recommend you to use the released code for production), and to make the theme more generic one and easy to re-use by others.

I got a clean and (I think) easy to read theme, with awesome icons (Font-awesome's if you didn't recognize yet), supporting both desktops/laptops and mobile devices and... I like it very much ;-)

It was a great exercise to learn more about html, js, css and less (a very interesting approach to deal with css).

I will publish the generic zen theme and the zen-ipython theme (which I'm using and you are seeing... right now) at the Nikola theme repository in a few days, after some more testing and customization.

Thanks again Aru Sahni, you are in some way the trigger for this theme... and very fun hours I experienced developing and learning by doing.


PS: If you have any to say about the overall design, ideas for improvements, things you hate about this theme, just let me know in the comments. Thanks.

Did you like the content? Great!

Btw, don't forget this blog post is an ipynb file itself! So, you can download it from the "Source" link at the top of the post if you want to play with it ;-)
