Styling content

With the Kramdown Markdown parser that Jekyll uses, you can add css classes to your content (see this blog post). The theme is build using Bulma So you can use classes from Bulma to style your content. If that doesn’t fit your needs, you can always write html in your Markdown and add your own css on /_sass/_main.scss.

Notification

Using the Bullma documentation we can add a notification

Alert info message. This paragraph is styled by prepending it with {: .notification .is-primary }.

Alert info message. This paragraph is styled by prepending it with {: .notification .is-danger }.
