Jekyll in a Docker Container

But this has been done. Why not docker pull jekyll/jekyll?

  • I wanted defaults to be jekyll serve when container is run, which I use 90% of time
  • I wanted to dev on a local jekyll site w/o having jekyll installed on my host OS
  • I wanted it to be as easy as possible to start
  • I wanted current alpine, ruby, and jekyll

So, this does that.

Getting Started

Assuming Docker and Docker Compose are installed:

cd dir/of/your/jekyll/site
docker run -p 80:4000 -v $(pwd):/site bretfisher/jekyll-serve

That's it!

Details: it will mount your current path into the containers /site, bundle install before running jekyll serve to , serve it at http://localhost.

To make this even easier, copy docker-compose.yml from this repo to your jekyll site root. Then you'll only need to:

cd dir/of/your/jekyll/site
docker-compose up

Q&A

Q. What if I need to create a site first?

just add a environment variable to the run command to tell the container to make one:

docker run -p 80:4000 -v $(pwd):/site -e JEKYLL_NEW=true bretfisher/jekyll-serve

Q. What if I want to run other jekyll commands?

just add the command to the end (with your -v included) to override the jekyll serve:

docker run -v $(pwd):/site bretfisher/jekyll-serve jekyll doctor
