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!
