Bored About Blog jekyll
Probably like many people I’ve “better to have it” syndrome. So we start an infinite search oh the Ultimate Tool. Perhaps by chance, perhaps by fate, I finally found it. I do not need to complicate simple notes, which I just take for myself.
Jekyll on GitHub
Really nothing is simpler than this winning combination.
Evil side of blogging
Jekyll is a blog-aware, static site generator in Ruby and to install it just type on your terminal:
$ [sudo] gem install jekyll
To create your first site just create a folder:
$ mkdir <folder> $ cd <folder>
and fill it with:
$ touch _config.yml $ touch index.html $ mkdir _layouts $ mkdir _posts
I watched many jekyll projects aroud the web and I decided to fork Zach for his cleaning without frippery; but I like too much orange to miss it… So I edited and filled my folder with some code and tried it with:
$ jekyll --server --auto
and magically (as Ruby user usually said) on localhost:4000 I found my empty blog.
Let deploy time begin
On the infinity and behind
Tomorrow I’ll try another guide to migrate my wordpress @ work and I promise I won’t speak about Ruby anymore. To googlefy this blog I need sitemap and analytics but for a while they can wait.
