Deploying Jekyll Sites
Jekyll is a static site generator that transforms your plain text into static websites and blogs.
You can install Jekyll on your own system, and get up and running with a few terminal commands:
$ gem install jekyll $ jekyll new my_project_name $ jekyll serve
In this post, we’ll walk through the process of deploying a jekyll site using UpDog, like this one - https://jekyll.updog.co/
Create A New UpDog Site
Visit https://updog.co/new and create a new site.
Once the site has been created, click on “Settings” and update the document root.
By default, Jekyll compiles all content to a directory named
_site. Set this
as the document root and click “Save”
Initialize the project in your Dropbox Folder
Once you’ve created your site on UpDog.co, navigate to your site folder in
$ jekyll new . $ jekyll build
Here’s the completed example: https://jekyll.updog.co/
