What's in this Course?

This course covers an older version of Jekyll. Some of the code may have changed. We are working on an update.

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 scheme 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 32 minute video 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.

Here’s a preview:
