Can you style footnote text?

Reference: issue 243, more on this: styling.

For the reference basically a footnote is inserted as

<sup id="fnref:1"><a href="/menu1/#fndef:1" class="fnref">[1]</a></sup>

So you can style that with the class .franklin-content sup a.fnref.

For definitions, it's inserted as a table like:

<table class="fndef" id="fndef:blah">
        <td class="fndef-backref"><a href="/menu1/#fnref:blah">[2]</a></td>
        <td class="fndef-content">this is another footnote</td>

so you can style the back-reference via the .franklin-content fndef td.fndef-backref and the text of the definition via .franklin-content fndef td.fndef-content; for instance, consider the following base styling:

.franklin-content table.fndef  {
    margin: 0;
    margin-bottom: 10px;}
.franklin-content .fndef tr, td {
    padding: 0;
    border: 0;
    text-align: left;}
.franklin-content .fndef tr {
    border-left: 2px solid lightgray;
.franklin-content .fndef td.fndef-backref {
    vertical-align: top;
    font-size: 70%;
    padding-left: 5px;}
.franklin-content .fndef td.fndef-content {
    font-size: 80%;
    padding-left: 10px;}

How to disable numbering of math in display mode?

It is possible to specify in the CSS which Katex equations will be numbered or not by adjusting the .katex-display::after class. If you want to disable numbering in the entire site, just head to _css/franklin.css and remove the .katex-display::after block. You can also build a simple way to disable all numbering inside a specified @@ div (see div blocks)

This is numbered:
$$ 1+1 = 2 $$

This isn't:

$$ 2+2 = 4 $$
$$ 3+3 = 7-1 $$

Numbered again:
$$ 7 + 1 = 8 $$

by adding in the CSS:

.no-number .katex-display::after {
  counter-increment: nothing;
  content: "";

And possibly define a command in config.md:

\newcommand{\nalign}[1]{@@no-number \begin{align}#1\end{align}@@}

if you feel it is more convenient to write \nalign{3+3 = 6}.


How to use loops for templating?

Reference: issue 251, more on this: code tricks.

Since you can show the output of any Julia code block (and interpret that output as Franklin markdown), you can use this to help with templating. For instance:

for name in ("Shinzo", "Donald", "Angela", "Christine")
    ### $name


<div class="card"><h3 id="shinzo"><a href="/index.html#shinzo">Shinzo</a></h3>  <img src="shinzo.jpg" alt="" /></div>
<div class="card"><h3 id="donald"><a href="/index.html#donald">Donald</a></h3>  <img src="donald.jpg" alt="" /></div>
<div class="card"><h3 id="angela"><a href="/index.html#angela">Angela</a></h3>  <img src="angela.jpg" alt="" /></div>
<div class="card"><h3 id="christine"><a href="/index.html#christine">Christine</a></h3>  <img src="christine.jpg" alt="" /></div>
