The post commands output the location of post in various formats.
You can do this 3 ways:
desi init -d ~/Desktop/blog
# initialize (and or create) a blog directory desi init -d ~/Desktop/blog # initialize the current directory pushd ~/Desktop/blog desi init
Note that you cannot initialize a directory that is already in use (where ‘in use’ means has at least one non-dotfile).
There are a number of themes available at https://github.com/DearDesi, just look for ones with ‘theme’ in the description.

desi build -d /path/to/blogto test if there are any issues with your existing yaml
page.urlthat might have an extra

See https://github.com/DearDesi/desirae/blob/master/GLOSSARY.md for disambiguation about the meaning of terms in Desi.
authors/YOUR_NAME.ymland model it after this example
site.yml, similar to this example
site.yml.base_url- the point of ownership (usually blog.example.com or example.com)
site.yml.base_path- where the blog is “mounted”, relative to the
authors/me.yml.name- most templates use this
authors/me.yml.email- and this
authors/me.yml.twitter- and this
