Here you can have a quick introduction to the different categories available on the site. Keep in mind that everything is a post, but depending on the category that you chose, you will be able to add more configuration to the post front matter.
*Note:* The categories should be in lowercase otherwise things might not work as expected.
The Log category
Any post with this category will be shown in the timeline page, it will show two main topics progress and thoughts. This is basically like the original log.md file that’s suggested on the #100daysofcode page.
You will write everything in the Front Matter, but if you need to write more things or if you just want to expand on your progress/thoughts or just keep notes you can write them as if a normal blog post.
When people press the button
>> read more the log will open and show the whole post.
## Front Matter configuration
layout: post title: # Your title subtitle: # short description or things worked on date: # Today's date so it will be shown on the calendar categories: log tags: # useful for you to add what sort of tech you used - # tag 1 - # tag 2 progress: # Today's progress towards the challenge thoughts: # How do you feel about today's progress or any other thoughts link: # a link of your work done (or the project)
*Note:* If you want to add a log to the blog you can add both, simply change
categories: log to
categories: log blog.
The Projects category
When working on the challenge, I started creating a few little projects, but after doing the challenge for 80 days, it became hard to keep track of my projects since I was adding them as folders.
This category is meant for you to keep tabs on what you have worked and how is a specific project going. Basically, you can keep a log of each individual project and when you finish it you can proudly show what you have done and how.
layout: post title: subtitle: date: # Today's date categories: project link: # A link of the project image: # An image of the project located in assets/images tags: # Great for showing off the tech used - # tag 1 - # tag 2
The Book category
My day to day job is based on shift work, which means that sometimes I can’t spend a whole hour coding because my brain is mush due to tiredness.
On days like this, I would spend at least an hour reading a technical book or a blog post.
With this category, I want to give you the power to show off all the books that you have either started or finished off and hopefully, you will feel motivated to read more.
Currently, this category is quite simple, it will show an image of the book is provided, the name and the percentage read. You can use goodreads if you want to know exactly how much you have read.
layout: post title: # Title of the book subtitle: # Author of the book date: # If you want to feature a book on the homepage, update for today's date categories: book read: 50 # This is meant to be the percentage you have read image: # the image of the book
The Blog category
The blog category is meant to be anything else that doesn’t fit on any of the other categories. Any post containing the
blog category will appear on the blog page.
layout: post title: # Your title subtitle: # Your subtitle date: # Today's date categories: blog # Any other category image: # Post image located in assets/image tags: - # tag 1 - # tag 2
Note: When you open a blog post to read, only the last category will be shown in the post header. Make sure
blog is the first category and add whatever else you want after.
By now you did a lot of reading. You can probably change the name of your fork and publish it to the GitHub pages - Head to settings, scroll down, GitHub pages tab.
And remember, let me know if you have any issues!
