Installing Jekyll in your Windows environment

Jekyll Logo

First of all, if you haven’t installed Ruby in your system, I have already taught how to do it, follows the post’s link: Ruby

Hi, I’m here to help you to install Jekyll in windows. It is very simple. First go to your command prompt and write this command:

gem update --system

This will update the RubyGem for you, after the process is finished, let’s install the Jekyll, write the following commands on the prompt:

gem install jekyll

Now, you have Jekyll installed, using it is simple, just go to the directory you want to create a server and do it, see the following exemple:

jekyll new my-awesome-site cd my-awesome-site jekyll serve Jekyll offers you a way to transform your static website into a dynamic one, since it’s a simple, blog-aware, static site generator.

I created a directory with the Jekyll using “new”, then I used “cd” to go to this directory, and when I was inside, I used “serve” to create a local server. And now, you can finally start your website and use a local server for tests. You can find me on Facebook and Twitter, if you have any doubts with the installation, contact me :)
