A starter project including full setup for Jekyll, GulpJS, SASS, AutoPrefixer & BrowserSync

Here's a 1.5min screencast showing what you get.

And here's a GIF showing the CSS injecting.


System Preparation

To use this starter project, you'll need the following things installed on your machine.

  1. Jekyll - $ gem install jekyll
  2. NodeJS - use the installer.
  3. GulpJS - $ npm install -g gulp (mac users may need sudo)

Local Installation

  1. Clone this repo, or download it into a directory of your choice.
  2. Inside the directory, run npm install.


development mode

This will give you file watching, browser synchronisation, auto-rebuild, CSS injecting etc etc.

$ gulp


As this is just a Jekyll project, you can use any of the commands listed in their docs

Deploy with Gulp

You can easily deploy your site build to a gh-pages branch. First, follow the instructions at gulp-gh-pages to get your branch prepared for the deployment and to install the module. Then, in gulpfile.js you'll want to include something like the code below. gulp.src() needs to be the path to your final site folder, which by default will be _site. If you change the destination in your _config.yml file, be sure to reflect that in your gulpfile.

var deploy = require("gulp-gh-pages");

gulp.task("deploy", ["jekyll-build"], function () {
    return gulp.src("./_site/**/*")
You can’t perform that action at this time.
