The idea of creating an AMP based theme for Jekyll came to me when I was searching the web for a theme that was clean, simple, modern, and easy to maintain. When I found the GitHub Pages’ theme Minimal, originally by @orderedlist, I fell in love, however I wanted the site to be quicker in loading. Therefore I created the AMP version of the theme, which my portfolio uses.
Publishing the Theme
In order to help other create a more open and connected world, I published my version of the theme as an open repository on Github.
