Iʼve recently taken over maintaining jekyll-picture-tags. jekyll-picture-tags is a plugin for Jekyll to add a Liquid tag for doing
<picture> elements. Picture elements are useful for doing responsive images, Iʼve been using it here on Ruin for quite a bit of time.
For my first release, Iʼve made a couple of small improvements. First off is a pull request that I created a few months ago. It speeds up the site builds when all of the images have already been generated. The other improvement is that you can now install it as a gem instead of copying it into your
_plugin folder. You still need to add Picturefill to your site for the polyfill.
I have many plans for jekyll-picture-tags. Iʼd like to add some tests but, Iʼm not sure exactly how that will work. Iʼm also hoping to simplify installation further. Take a look and let me know what you think. Iʼm also looking for contributors.
