As of the last update to GitHub Pages, the literal tag is now raw.
Today I wanted to start on a new series of blog entries, called “Notes to self”. The “Notes to self” series of blog articles is a series of brief facts, tricks and code snippets that I consider to be useful, memorable and don’t want to forget.

The first entry of this new series is about GitHub Pages.

Early this year, GitHub Pages was updated to Jekyll 0.12.0. There are a few nifty new things, but there is also something not included in the changelog and not obvious to see: The {% literal %} tag is now ` {% raw %} . So, if you happened to have blog posts that included the literal - tag (like some of my previous posts), you have to update them to the new raw` tag in order to build correctly.
