# Remote Procedure Call

You’ll find this post in your _posts directory. Go ahead and edit it and re-build the site to see your changes. You can rebuild the site in many different ways, but the most common way is to run jekyll serve, which launches a web server and auto-regenerates your site when a file is updated.

To add new posts, simply add a file in the _posts directory that follows the convention YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.ext and includes the necessary front matter. Take a look at the source for this post to get an idea about how it works.

Jekyll also offers powerful support for code snippets:

def print_hi(name)
puts "Hi, #{name}"
end
print_hi('Tom')
#=> prints 'Hi, Tom' to STDOUT.


Check out the Jekyll docs for more info on how to get the most out of Jekyll. File all bugs/feature requests at Jekyll’s GitHub repo. If you have questions, you can ask them on Jekyll Talk.

Here’s some textSee Tufte’s comment in the Tufte book fonts thread. which has a little foot/side note thingy.

This is another example of a thing.Blue text, while also a widely recognizable clickable-text indicator, is crass and distracting. Luckily, it is also rendered unnecessary by the use of underlining. This thing is different becuase it doesn’t have a number I guess?

One can also have blockquotes

The English language . . . becomes ugly and inaccurate because our thoughts are foolish, but the slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.

George Orwell, “Politics and the English Language”

This is also a blockquote, but I guess it doesn’t have who it’s attributed to.

This is a bulleted list:

• one
• two
• three

This is a numbered list:

1. one
2. two
3. three

You can also have inline math, like this $x^2+x=4$ as well as equation blocks:

$x^2 + 3 = y$
