What is Jekyll?

09 Jun 2017 0 Comments jekyll ruby

Jekyll is a static website builder, it assembeles and combines multiple pages to form one unified HTML page. Jekyll uses YAML language to organize the structure of the page. Markdown language, which is a text-to-HTML converter, makes webpages easy to write and adapt.

Jekyll is writen in Ruby and can be installed using gem. On a Linux machine that already has Ruby installed, Jekyll can be installed as the following:

gem install jekyll bundler
jekyll new my-awesome-site
cd my-awesome-site
bundle exec jekyll serve

Now you can visualize the page using http://localhost:4000
