I had been exploring Jekyll for quite sometime. I simply followed the below traditional, developer like approach -
- download Ruby
- download Jekyll
- play around with platform capabilities - focus on Liquid
- see how themes are created
However, I realised mid-way that select themes offer a good way for anyone to get started.
- Just copy themes to your own repository
- Edit content
- Go-live on github.io
This information is available to anyone who is remotely interested, but the conversation on such sites were not as prevalent as they should be.
So, I created a free book to introduce Jekyll platform to non-programmers and beginners. The book “Level-up your Websites using Jekyll” will take you through the process of creating a website quickly (and for free) by using themes.
Go through the book on GitHub.
