What is Jekyll
Jekyll is a blog-aware, static sites generator that was created to simplify the process of creating static website. The reason that I use Jekyll is that it removes the need for a server, a database, or security updates. Just push markdown content to a git repo on Github and github pages using Jekyll. After a few minutes my updated website appears at blog.abluestar.com. Since the pages are static, there is little chance of someone exploiting a flaw in the web server, or in a script to deface my website. I been using Jekyll and Github pages to build my website since 2016.
New Jekyll theme
I needed to relearn Jekyll for an upcoming work project and decided to revamp the theme on my personal website as a learning experience. I just finished the update and this is the first post with the new theme. Clean, simple, with SEO and social sharing baked in. Tell me what you think.
