Getting started

Dependencies

Just the Docs is built for Jekyll, a static site generator. View the quick start guide for more information. Just the Docs requires no special plugins and can run on GitHub Pages' standard Jekyll compiler. The Jekyll SEO Tag plugin is included by default (no need to run any special installation) to inject SEO and open graph metadata on docs pages. For information on how to configure SEO and open graph metadata visit the Jekyll SEO Tag usage guide.

Quick start: Use as a GitHub Pages remote theme

  1. Add Just the Docs to your Jekyll site's _config.yml as a remote theme
remote_theme: pmarsceill/just-the-docs

You must have GitHub Pages enabled on your repo, one or more Markdown files, and a _config.yml file. See an example repository

Local installation: Use the gem-based theme

  1. Install the Ruby Gem
$ gem install just-the-docs
# .. or add it to your your Jekyll site’s Gemfile
gem "just-the-docs"
  1. Add Just the Docs to your Jekyll site’s _config.yml
theme: "just-the-docs"
  1. Optional: Initialize search data (creates search-data.json)
$ bundle exec just-the-docs rake search:init
  1. Run you local Jekyll server
$ jekyll serve
# .. or if you're using a Gemfile (bundler)
$ bundle exec jekyll serve
  1. Point your web browser to http://localhost:4000

If you're hosting your site on GitHub Pages, set up GitHub Pages and Jekyll locally so that you can more easily work in your development environment.
