Jeykll supports the use of Markdown with inline HTML tags which makes it easier to quickly write posts with Jekyll, without having to worry too much about text formatting. A sample of the formatting follows.

Tables have also been extended from Markdown:

First Header Second Header
Content Cell Content Cell
Content Cell Content Cell

Here’s an example of an image, which is included using Markdown:

Geometric pattern with fading gradient

Highlighting for code in Jekyll is done using Pygments or Rouge. This theme makes use of Pygments by default.

// count to ten
for (var i = 1; i <= 10; i++) {
console.log(i);
}

// count to twenty
var j = 0;
while (j < 20) {
j++;
console.log(j);
}
