What is Jekyll?
Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory (representing the raw form of a website), runs it through and Liquid converters, and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server. This is also the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host your project’s page or blog right from GitHub.
Unlike some listed alternatives, Jekyll is also a static site generator so it lays in the same category. It uses Ruby (while Hugo uses Go) and I'd say it's simpler than Hugo (simpler in functionality and simpler to understand).
