If you're running Jekyll v3.5+ and self-hosting you can quickly install the theme as a Ruby gem. ### Gem-based method With Gem-based themes, directories such as the `assets`, `_layouts`, `_includes`, and `_sass` are stored in the theme’s gem, hidden from your immediate view. This allows for easier installation and updating as you don't have to manage any of the theme files.
