I have changed the classic Octopress theme to this cleaner greyshade theme by Shashank Mehta.
This is how you can install:
$ git submodule add [email protected]:shashankmehta/greyshade.git .themes/greyshade $ git submodule update --init $ echo "\$greyshade: #1DBE49;" >> sass/custom/_colors.scss $ rake "install[greyshade]"
Note that the only condition from the author is that you use a unique highlight color. In the above, my highlight color is
#1DBE49 (my kind of green).
After installing, I entered my
_config.yml which is needed to show the profile pic (via Gravatar).
With that, here are screenshots of the old vs new:
