Local Build

If you want to see the changes before pushing the blog to Github, do a local build.

  1. gem install jekyll
  2. gem install jekyll-seo-tag
  3. (cd to the blog directory, then:) jekyll serve --watch --port 8000
  4. Go to http://0.0.0.0:8000/ in your web browser.

Note: In case you have set a baseurl different than / in _config.yml, go to http://0.0.0.0:8000/BASEURL/ instead.

Local build using docker

docker run --rm -p 8000:8000 \
  --volume="LOCATION_OF_YOUR_JEKYLL_BLOG:/srv/jekyll" \
  -it tocttou/jekyll:3.5 \
  jekyll serve --watch --port 8000

Replace LOCATION_OF_YOUR_JEKYLL_BLOG with the full path of your blog repository. Visit http://localhost:8000/ to access the blog.

Note: In case you have set a baseurl different than / in _config.yml, go to http://0.0.0.0:8000/BASEURL/ instead.
