Jekyll is a static site generator that takes template and content files and outputs a completely static site. It requires no database or special server software. That means your content isn't locked up in a database schema you don't know or a CMS you don't understand. You can run Jekyll on any server that supports serving static HTML, CSS, and image files -- so, pretty much anywhere! This course walks you through the basics of building a website with Jekyll. We start by walking through how Jekyll works, installing Jekyll and then, piece-by-piece, we build a basic content site. At the end, we learn how to deploy a Jekyll site to Github Pages.
