changelog

Initially developed to automatically generate and power the GitHub Pages service, Jekyll can also be deployed on standalone servers and help users run their very own website

Jekyll works by reading a template, running it through a Textile/Markdown and Liquid converters, and spitting out a complete static website.

It is very fast when it comes to compiling the site, and since the outputted resources are static HTML, CSS, and JS resources, the end-product is also very fast as well.

Jekyll is not a full-blown CMS, but merely a script that assembles the final website from content files and templates, without having to deal with a complex administration panel.

It works solely from the Ruby terminal and uses a very easy to understand folder structure.

Process:
Set up the basic structure of the site
Create some posts, or import them from a previous platform
Run the site locally to see how it looks
Deploy the site
