Hi Ariel,

Circle is needed to preview PRs.

On your fork take a look at the individual blog pages - the path goes to
the base and it is not found. And then on circle since the baseurl is "/"
it would be quite broken looking.

Right now adding a project would mean adding an entry to the data file
<https://github.com/vsoch/nipy-jekyll/blob/master/_data/packages.yml>, and
then copying a template page for it (for example
<https://github.com/vsoch/nipy-jekyll/blob/master/sdm.html>, you would just
need the header and to name the page corresponding to its tag in the data
file). The navigation, front page, and D3 are rendered from that file, but
I didn't see a nice way to generate an entire page for the package. The
reason I had originally chosen flask is because a person could just add a
line to a tsv file, and the application would be smart enough to make the
page if the user did not. I don't see a way to achieve that with these more
syntax based frameworks.

For the content and more tweaks to the design - let's hold off on jumping
into that until we get this url issue worked out! I am totally game for
adjusting the design, layout, content for whatever people think is best.
