Creating your first post in Ymple

Cras at dolor eget urna varius faucibus tempus in elit. Cras a dui imperdiet, tempus metus quis, pharetra turpis.

To create a new post, you can create a new markdown file inside the _posts directory by following the recommended file naming 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. For example, the following are examples of valid post filenames:

Post requires front matter, everything in between the first and second — are part of the YAML Front Matter, and everything after the second — will be rendered with Markdown and show up as “Content”. The following is a post file with different configurations you can add as example:

layout: post
title: How To Travel On Low Budget

You can rebuild the site in many different ways, but the most common way is to run bundle exec Ymple serve, which launches a web server and auto-regenerates your site when a file is updated.

To keep things more organized, add post images to /assets/posts/ directory, and add theme images to /assets/img/ directory.
