Welcome to Jekyll!

Description of the post.

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.

To add new posts, simply add a file in the _posts directory that follows the convention YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.ext and includes 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:


namespace FooBar;

class Foo extends Bar
    public function __construct(Bim $ec) {
        $var = $ec->getVar();
        echo $this->getInfo($var);

    private function getInfo($var) {
        return $var*2;

$bim = new Bim();
$foo = new Foo($bim);
