Run in a Docker container
If you have Docker installed, can avoid some of the hassle of installing Jekyll and/or Ruby by pulling from the offical Jekyll image, installing dependancies, and serving locally.
This is especially handy if you're on Windows machine:
docker run --rm --label=jekyll --volume=%CD%:/srv/jekyll -it -p 4000:4000 jekyll/jekyll set JEKYLL_VERSION=3.6.3 | bundle install | jekyll serve
