Basic Jekyll!06 Jun 2017 | blog
I guess I should blog some of the stuff I’m tinkering with so I don’t forget what I’m learning. I’m going to start at the base and log a few bits and commands about getting started with Jekyll.
First off, you need to install Jekyll. I’m currently using a Mac and I have the full build of Ruby installed for some Chef tinkering so I was able to follow the Jekyll Quick start. I did have to change the install path as described on the Jekyll Troubleshooting page.
Ok, hopefully you got it installed so let’s actually do something with it.
# Install Jekyll and Bundler gems through RubyGems ~ $ gem install jekyll bundler ## Create a new Jekyll site at ./myblog ~ $ jekyll new myblog # Change into your new directory ~ $ cd myblog # Build the site on the preview server ~/myblog $ bundle exec jekyll serve # Now browse to <http://localhost:4000>
(Yeah, I know, looks familiar, eh? That’s cause I copied it straight from the Quick start guide… It works, why reinvent the wheel…)
Next is to create a post.
# Create post file using the following format # YEAR-MONTH-DAY-title.MARKUP ~/myblog $ touch _posts/2017-06-05-basic-jekyll.md
From there, add your header and start writing. Post Docs
