Jekyll Is AwesomePublished 06 January 2016
Jekyll, a program which parses a bunch of easy-to-write template files and HTML and Markdown into a static site, makes it easier. Maintaining and updating my site has become a breeze since I implemented Jekyll. It took surprising little effort to convert my previously-dynamically-loaded content to Jekyll _includes. Moreover, I can (and have) automated parts of my site; for example, the ‘projects’ submenu in the navbar is generated from the files in the _projects folder. I’m writing this blog post in Markdown; Jekyll will convert and format it as HTML.
This is awesome. My site is awesome. Jekyll is awesome.
