Adding RSS to Jekyll

Today I set about the task of adding a RSS feed to the site. I knew this was something that Jekyll supported as there's a Liquid tag for each post's unique identifier, but I didn't expect a Google search to deliver ready-to-use templates. After customising the RSS template for my site, the only thing I had to do was add a <link> tag to the default layout.

Many thanks to Dave Coyle at for making his Atom/RSS templates available and saving me a lot of time.
