Jekyll Reviews

The only static blog software that works with Github Pages directly

about Jekyll · · Helpful Not helpful

You can use github pages to serve up static HTML, CSS, and JS

There's a number of static blog site generators like

  • Hexo (based on Node.js)
  • Hugo
  • Jekyll
    etc

Jekyll is the only one directly supported by github for regenerating content with ruby / gem packages, which is done server-side. Everything else (Hugo, Hexo) you have to install your own dependecies locally and serve up the HTML / CSS /JS into github pages yourself

So it makes for a very lightweight and potentially feature-rich blog page all run through github, and very easy to use without much work once everythings setup

Strongly suggest you use

Small Prose iconProse prose.io for handling / editing content CMS style

and

Small GitHub Pages iconGitHub Pages for hosting static site / jekyll blog
