Starting w/ Jekyll v3.3 you can package your themes (layouts,
includes, assets) into gems. To show how easy it is to add a new
scaffold to quik/qk  - the missing code generator / scaffolder for
ruby. I've put together a new scaffold for gem-packaged jekyll themes
that mirrors/copies the $ jekyll new-theme command. Try:
$ quik new jekyll-theme
to get started. This will use the jekyll-theme.rb  quik starter script and
the quickstart/jekyll-starter-theme template  - just a plain git repo.
If anyone tries out qk/quik, let us know what you think.
PS: You're invited to add your own scaffolds (gem starters, sinatra
starters, jekyll starters, etc.)
PPS: Use $ gem install quik if you haven't yet installed qk/quik
