Jekyll

By Tom Preston-Werner, Nick Quaranto, and many awesome contributors!

Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory (representing the raw form of a website), runs it through Textile or Markdown and Liquid converters, and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server. This is also the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host your project’s page or blog right here from GitHub.

Getting Started

Diving In

Dependencies

  • RedCloth: Textile support
  • Liquid: Templating system
  • Classifier: Generating related posts
  • Maruku: Default markdown engine
  • Directory Watcher: Auto-regeneration of sites
  • Open4: Talking to pygments for syntax highlighting

Custom Filters

Jekyll can use custom liquid filters for the rendering of your site, these
can be created in the same way as standard liquid filters. Before a filter
will work through Jekyll you need to include the filter module:

include Jekyll::Filters::Custom

Filters are expected inside a _filters directory at the root of
your source directory.

Jekyll custom liquid filter example:

module MyModule
module StringFilter
include Jekyll::Filters::Custom

def my_filter(arg)
“Hello World!”
end
end
end

You would then be able to use the filter inside your templates:

{{ “arg” | my_filter }}

Custom filters can be enable by running Jekyll with the flag:

$ jekyll —custom-filters

You can also use the custom_filters property in the YML config.
