Jekyll is a static website generator. That means no databases or plugins—just content. Sites are generated through the command prompt, but Jekyll is designed so that even nondevelopers can use it. Here James Williamson breaks down the Jekyll "gem" in simple, nontechnical terms that most designers can understand. He shows how to build templates and individual pages by using the Liquid template language, Markdown, and YAML front matter, which Jekyll then processes to generate the finished site. James also shows you how to build a blog with a blog index, pagination, standalone pages, and an archive page based on tags. In the final chapters, he demonstrates how to deploy Jekyll websites using GitHub Pages.

    Installing Jekyll
    Setting configuration options
