In an attempt to add value to the devanooga community, a few members suggested that a blog be created. If you would like to contribute, here are a few instructions on how you can go about that.


Jekyll posts are written in Markdown, so open your preferred markdown editor and create a file in the following format:

Caveat: The filename can not be in titlecase.

Front Matter

At the top of the file, make sure to include your YAML Front Matter. Here is the front matter for this article:

title: How to Post to the Devanooga Blog
layout: post
author: Ryan Maynard
date: 2017-04-17


By default, Jekyll will grab the first fifty words of your post for the excerpt. If you would like more granular control of that, you can use the excerpt tag.

 Some text shown in your post excerpt.


 The rest of the post.


While writing your post, you may need a quick Markdown syntax refresher.


To add your post, you’ll need to fork the devanooga site repo on Github. If you are uncomfortable with Git, feel free to ask someone for help in the devanooga slack.

Directory Structure

You’ll add your post to the _posts directory, and your images, if any, to the images/blog/<postname> directory.

├── _posts
│   └──
└── images
    ├── blog
