Basically, this plugin will generate a archive based on your specified layout so that you can access it at url like

example.org/2014/
example.org/2014/08/

At first, I thought this is one of the default feature of jekyll but I was mistaken toto for jekyll. toto was another static site generator that I used before.

Anyway, this is what you are gonna get at the end.

I’m not the author of this plugin. I just modified it to suit my needs, adding stuff like: grouping post, generate yearly archive.

If you want to take a peak, head over to the plugin’s repo on GitHub.
