My favorite jekyll themes... How bout you?

Depending on the needs of a project, searching for a working jekyll theme can be involve some serious research... 


Not just working, but that builds without a warning that one of its components will be depreciated soon.

 

I like to organize a lot of information on a variety of related, and sometimes less related, topics.

 

What I'm usually looking for:

  • Mobile 1st
  • Sidebar Nav
  • Header image that integrates w jekyll seo tag, or works alongside

 

With Minimal Mistakes, I can throw 50 links in my sidebar nav and it works great even on my iphone se(tiny)

(note: 1000 links wil not work in the sidebar... but 50-100 seems to work fine) 

 

But I also like themes that have interesting features that aren't found elsewhere, or are really good for a specific funtion... and no matter how nice a theme is, I won't use the same one for every project...

 

How I find themes:

I went to talk.jekyllrb.com, but it was down at time of posting:

 

[edit: upon further review, this page ^^^ is GOLD and was contributed to from the beginning of 2018, which leads me to believe they are all relatively up to date.]
 
and use http://forked.yannick.io to find maintained versions, and in the wild examples of your favorites.

 

My favorites are:


I am working to learn hugo, also... but I really want to find and index all of the best maintained jekyll themes.

 

What are your favorites?

 

I am keeping track ;)

note: originally this was kind of a gripey post because I was tired and frustrated. Since then, I combed through and organized my research better. Then decided to replace my gripes w some thing useful, because there really are many wonderful themes.
