To add new posts, simply add a file in the _posts directory that follows the convention YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.markdown.

Jekyll also offers powerful support for code snippets:

def print_sth(str):
#=> e.g., prints 'hello world' to STDOUT.

jekyll also offers powerful support for latex math fomulations:

\[\begin{align*} & \phi(x,y) = \phi \left(\sum_{i=1}^n x_ie_i, \sum_{j=1}^n y_je_j \right) = \sum_{i=1}^n \sum_{j=1}^n x_i y_j \phi(e_i, e_j) = \\ & (x_1, \ldots, x_n) \left( \begin{array}{ccc} \phi(e_1, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_1, e_n) \\ \vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\ \phi(e_n, e_1) & \cdots & \phi(e_n, e_n) \end{array} \right) \left( \begin{array}{c} y_1 \\ \vdots \\ y_n \end{array} \right) \end{align*}\]

To enable this functionality, we first specify markdown: kramdown in the _config.yaml file and add the following snippet in the front of </head> tag of /_include/head.html file (if it is not in the repository, use bundle show minima to find the location of minima theme):

<!-- Mathjax Support -->
<script type="text/javascript" async

Use bundle exec jekyll serve to build and run the website natively.
