What is Jekyll?

Jekyll is a simple, blog-aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory containing raw text files in various formats, runs it through a converter (like Markdown) and our Liquid renderer, and spits out a complete, ready-to-publish static website suitable for serving with your favorite web server. Jekyll also happens to be the engine behind GitHub Pages, which means you can use Jekyll to host your project’s page, blog, or website from GitHub’s servers for free.

How to use this image

This image provides Jekyll together with the github-pages extension, so it is suitable to preview content for
organisation pages or the gh-pages branch of your project.

$ cd path/to/your/project
$ docker run --rm -v "$PWD:/src" -p 4000:4000 greencape/jekyll serve

Now browse to http://localhost:4000 to see your rendered contents.

To make jekyll available as a command on your command line, add an alias into your .bashrc:

alias jekyll="docker run --rm -v "$PWD:/src" -p 4000:4000 greencape/jekyll"
