Jekyll Lens uses Jekyll Static Site Generator (SSG) to generate the website and GitHub Pages to host it.

You won't need any expensive server, just to host a photo blog. You don't even need to code anything. Just follow the steps below to setup your photo blog in minutes.

  1. Fork this repository by clicking the Fork button at the top right.

  2. Enable GitHub Pages from the repository settings.
    Your site will be automatically generated and published at https://<username><repository_name>. You can also add your custom domain if you want.
    (For more details visit: GitHub Pages).

  3. Modify the _config.yml file to your liking.
    More information on each key in the _config.yml file has been described in the file itself, as comments.

The HTML5 version of Lens template is designed by HTML5UP. A special thanks to them for the design, which I further enhanced for use with Jekyll.
