Jekyll Site Extension

The Jekyll Site Extension adds support for Jekyll to Azure Web App.


  1. Create an Azure Web App
  2. Set an App Setting for SCM_COMMAND_IDLE_TIMEOUT to 600
  3. Install the Jekyll Site Extension

Note: This site extension downloads ruby and devkit so the installation takes longer than the portal timeout, so you may see an error in the portal, however the installation should complete. Be Patient.

That's it! Just hook up your GitHub Account or Push a local Git Repo with your Jekyll site.

You can optionally set an Application-Setting in your Azure Web App to run a script before and / or after running the Jekyll Build-Task:

  • PRE_DEPLOYMENT_ACTION - Command is called before Jekyll Build-Task
  • POST_DEPLOYMENT_ACTION - Command is called after Jekyll Build-Task
