This website is built with Jekyll and hosted on GitHub pages. I wrote a custom theme for Jekyll using Twitter Bootstrap. The fonts I used are Nunito font the sans-serif headings and Cardo for the content; both fonts are provided by Google fonts. The syntax highlighter theme is a slightly modified version of Pygments’ pastie theme to make inline code look similar to fenced code. Finally, maths is rendered using MathJax.

markdown: kramdown
highlighter: rouge

  input: GFM

MathJax offers support for inline formulae (like \(\sin(x^{2y}) \)) or centered equations like this:

\[a^2 + b^2 = c^2\]

To enable MathJax in Jekyll, you just have to call it from your HTML’s page header:
