Vyaasa

Vyaasa is a theme built for writers. It is suitable for long text posts.

Features:

Vyaasa is a theme made for blogs with long text paragraphs. Made to be easy on eyes as well.

Suitable fonts are selected for better readability. Since the theme is created for smartphone reading, the theme is very light so that it loads instantly on a slow data connection.

The theme comes with pre-installed analytics, disqus and html compressor. But make sure you change key parameters in the _config.yml file.

Installation:

Fork the master branch and delete gh-pages branch in it. This is important because gh-pages branch is used here only to host the blog. You should be using the master branch as the source and create a fresh gh-pages branch.
