While working on another post I finally made the decision to improve the appearance of this blog a bit, and unfortunately I’d forgotten exactly how to do that. Even more unfortunate, I never blogged about the process so I had to “discover” the details all over again. 😢 This post is intended to remedy that.
The theme used here, m10c, employs .scss, or SASS (Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets) files. Subsequently, a SASS compiler is required to process them and produce suitable .css to control the display you see now.
Since I use Atom for all of my maintenance and content here, it only made sense to create a workflow that would make compilation of .scss changes automatic. Doing so on each of my Mac’s involved these simple steps:
Install SASS - I used homebrew from the command line based on guidance found here, like so: brew install sass/sass/sass
Also… I’ve forgotten more than once to document the super-simple Emoji capabilities of Hugo and the handy cheatsheet available at https://www.webfx.com/tools/emoji-cheat-sheet/. Not forgotten anymore. Now, just don’t forget to add enableEmoji = true to your config.toml, and emoji: true to the frontmatter of your posts!
