Guest writers

My friend Luís modified one of my blog posts on WebGL shaders, and we posted it here. I didn’t have this blog set up for guest posts, so here’s what I’ve done.

I need to mark who wrote the post. We do this with an author key in the metadata, like:

title: "Cool WebGL shader"
author: luis

This should default to me. I set this in my _config.yml:

  - values:
      author: jim

For info about those authors, I created _data/people.yaml:

  name: "Luís Fonseca"
  url: ""

We can look up this data in the post layout, like so:

{% if != "jim" %}
    <a href="{{[].url}}">
{% endif %}
