Here be a sample post with a custom background image. To utilize this “feature” just add the following YAML to a post’s front matter.
This little bit of YAML makes the assumption that your background image asset is in the /images folder. If you place it somewhere else or are hotlinking from the web, just include the full http(s):// URL. Either way you should have a background image that is tiled.
If you want to set a background image for the entire site just add background: filename.png to your _config.yml and BOOM — background images on every page!
Syntax highlighting is a feature that displays source code, in different colors and fonts according to the category of terms. This feature facilitates writing in a structured language such as a programming language or a markup language as both structures and syntax errors are visually distinct. Highlighting does not affect the meaning of the text itself; it is intended only for human readers.1
GFM Code Blocks
GitHub Flavored Markdown fenced code blocks are supported. To modify styling and highlight colors edit /_sass/syntax.scss.
