Jekyll Admin assumes several conditions are met:
1. You have a functioning Jekyll blog already configured
2. You are placing Jekyll Admin into the RAILS_ROOT of a functioning Rails application.
3. You want to save your posts in HTML format.

Configuration is done through two YAML files:
- config/jekyll_admin.yml
- config/jekyll_admin_post_template.yml

Start by editing jekyll_admin.yml. There are comments above each configuration option.
Jekyll Admin assumes your relative_blog_path is a standard Jekyll configuration.
This means that the Jekyll configuration file is named _config.yml and that your posts are
all in the _posts directory.

Due to the nature of jekyll rb, every blog can be different. I’ve done my best to make sure
whatever fields you use can be edited with Jekyll Admin. There are some reserved words that
will not be written to your post file even if you put them in the jekyll_admin_post_template.
They are “filename” and “body”. Filename is used internally for the filename of the post.
Body is used to hold the text/html of your post until it is published. Do not use either of
these variables when creating any templates for your posts.

Jekyll Admin currently assumes all files are going to be stored with html markdown.

You can find Jekyll Admin updates on Git Hub:

I recommend copying these files into your existing rails app by hand.

Download from git
git clone
wget; unzip -a

rm -rf Jekyll-Admin/.git
rm Jekyll-Admin/.gitignore
cp -R Jekyll-Admin/* /my/web/

I originally created Jekyll Admin for the backend of Change This is operated and
hosted by my employer 800-CEO-READ ( Change This is a great place to get out
your ideas and challenge the status quo, no matter what your opinion is. 800-CEO-READ is a great place
to order bulk business books. When you need 20 or more copies of a book somewhere on a certain date,
they can do it. Even if that “somewhere” is more than one place.
