Jekyll in a Docker Container

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

  • I wanted two images, one for easy CLI (bretfisher/jekyll) and one for easy local server for dev with sane defaults (bretfisher/jekyll-serve), which I use 90% of time
  • So you can start any Jekyll server with docker-compose up
  • 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.

Note I have courses on Docker (including a Lecture on Jekyll in Docker).

Docker Images

Image Purpose Example
bretfisher/jekyll Runs Jekyll by default with no options, good for general CLI commands docker run -v $(pwd):/site bretfisher/jekyll new .
bretfisher/jekyll-serve Runs Jekyll serve with sane defaults, good for local Jekyll site dev docker run -p 8080:4000 -v $(pwd):/site bretfisher/jekyll-serve

Getting Started

Creating a site:

cd to empty directory
docker run -v $(pwd):/site bretfisher/jekyll new .

Start a local server with sane defaults listening on port 8080:

cd dir/of/your/jekyll/site
docker run -p 8080:4000 -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://<docker-host>:8080.

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 want to run other jekyll commands?

just add the jekyll options to the end of the bretfisher/jekyll:

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