Minimal Mistakes is a flexible two-column Jekyll theme. Perfect for hosting your personal site, blog, or portfolio on GitHub or self-hosting on your own server. As the name implies — styling is purposely minimalistic to be enhanced and customized by you :smile:.

The theme includes responsive layouts (single, archive, and splash pages) that look great on mobile and desktop browsers.
