Welcome to jekyll-minimal-theme - Another Minimal Jekyll Theme

What’s jekyll-minimal-theme?

It’s another minimal(istic) Jekyll static site generator theme, that is, a ready-to-fork template pack. For example:

├── _config.yml                               # site configuration
├── _posts                                    # sample blog posts
|   ├──     #   filename format:
|   ├──
|   ├──
|   └──
├── _layouts                           
|   ├── default.html                   # master layout template
|   └── post.html                      # single blog post template
├── css                               
|   ├── _settings.scss                 # style settings (e.g. variables)
|   └── style.scss                     # master style page
├── feed.xml                           # web feed template (e.g. in atom format)
├── archive.html                       # archive template
└── index.html                         # index template

will result in (with permalink: /:title.html):

└── _site                                # output build folder; site gets generated here
    ├── css
    |   └── style.css                    # styles for pages (copied 1:1 as is)
    ├── sportdb-update-v192.html         # blog post page
    ├── new-repo-baviria-bayern.html     # another blog post page
    ├── sql-views.html                   #  ""
    ├── new-repo-maps.html               #  ""
    ├── quick-starter-datafiles.html     #  ""
    ├── feed.xml                         # web feed (e.g. in atom format)
    ├── archive.html                     # archive page
    └── index.html                       # index page

To use - delete all sample posts in the _posts folder and change the settings in _config.yml to use your own site.title and site.url:

title:   'Jekyll Minimal Theme'
url:     ''
  name:  'Jekyll Minimal Theme Team'

Added football.db Quick Starter Datafile Templates - $ sportdb new worldcup

The sportdb command line tool now includes a new quick starter template command to (auto-)download Datafile scripts from the new openfootball/datafile registry.

For example, to build yourself a copy of the worldcup2014.db type:

$ sportdb new worldcup2014 

The new command will run these steps:

  • Step 1: Download worldcup2014.rb Datafile (from GitHub) to your working folder as ./Datafile
  • Step 2: Run the sportdb build command
    • Step 2.a: Download all datasets listed in the Datafile as zip archives (from GitHub) to ./tmp
    • Step 2.b: Create the “empty” database, that is, table structure, indexes, etc. (schema)
    • Step 2.c: Read in all datasets from the zip archives in ./tmp (no need to unpack)

That’s it. All done and setup with a single command. Still early and rough.

PS: The first quick starter Datafile templates include:

  • worldcup => All World Cups 1930-2014
  • en => English Premier Leagues
  • en2014-15 => English Premier League 2014/15
  • cl2014-15 => (European) Champions League 2014/15

football.db SQL Queries Made Easy (Thanks to Views)

First thanks to Joe Kampschmidt for getting started w/ some SQL queries examples.

Added some SQL views to make it easier to query the football.db. Example - List World Cup Brazil 2014 Games:

Before (Table Edition):

SELECT t1.title, 
  FROM games g 
       LEFT OUTER JOIN teams t1 ON = g.team1_id 
       LEFT OUTER JOIN teams t2 ON = g.team2_id 
       INNER JOIN rounds r ON = g.round_id 
       INNER JOIN events e ON = r.event_id 
 WHERE e.key = 'world.2014' 

After (View Edition):

  FROM events_games_list 
 WHERE e.key = 'world.2014'; 

More views include:

  • teams_list
  • games_list
  • events_list
  • events_teams_list
  • events_games_list
  • events_rounds_list
  • events_groups_list

sportdb Update v1.9.2 - Added Match Goals Reader e.g. [Messi 3', 45+1']

What’s news? sportdb command line updates:

The match schedule reader now will add goals (plus auto-add missing players). All still a little rough but working without any (extra) configuration. Example:

(1) Thu Jun/12 17:00   Brazil 3-1 (1-1) Croatia       @ Arena de São Paulo, São Paulo
        [Neymar 29', 71' (pen.) Oscar 90+1';  Marcelo 11' (o.g.)] 

The reader will add four goal records (see the table goals w/ fields such as player_id, team_id, minute, offset, score1, score2 etc.):

1 |   Marcelo  11'   (o.g.)   1-0   Croatia (Team 2) 
2 |   Neymar   29'            1-1   Brazil  (Team 1) 
3 |   Neymar   71'   (pen.)   2-1   Brazil  (Team 1) 
4 |   Oscar    90'+1'         3-1   Brazil  (Team 1)

Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the original title of a novella written by the Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson that was first published in 1886. The work is commonly known today as The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, or simply Jekyll & Hyde. It is about a London lawyer named Gabriel John Utterson who investigates strange occurrences between his old friend, Dr. Henry Jekyll, and the evil Edward Hyde.

The work is commonly associated with the rare mental condition often called “split personality”, referred to in psychiatry as dissociative identity disorder, where within the same body there exists more than one distinct personality. In this case, there are two personalities within Dr Jekyll, one apparently good and the other evil. The novella’s impact is such that it has become a part of the language, with the very phrase “Jekyll and Hyde” coming to mean a person who is vastly different in moral character from one situation to the next.

Biographer Graham Balfour quoted Stevenson’s wife Fanny Stevenson:

In the small hours of one morning, […] I was awakened by cries of horror from Louis. Thinking he had a nightmare, I awakened him. He said angrily: “Why did you wake me? I was dreaming a fine bogey tale.” I had awakened him at the first transformation scene.

Quotes from “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”:

Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune or misfortune at their own private pace, like a clock during a thunderstorm.

– Robert Louis Stevenson

It is one thing to mortify curiosity, another to conquer it.

– Robert Louis Stevenson

If I am the chief of sinners, I am the chief of sufferers also.

– Robert Louis Stevenson
