Create a Static Website Using Jekyll


Great work! Let's review what you accomplished in this unit:

  1. Installed Jekyll
  2. Used Jekyll to generate a static site
  3. Started a local server to view your site

Why was this important? The course will focus on the deployment process, but first we needed content to deploy. Jekyll quickly provided us with that content and now we can focus on the deployment process.


Take a look at the diagram to the right. In this unit, you successfully accomplished the first step: using Jekyll to generate a website.

We also provided you with handy Jekyll commands used to preview your site along with an overview of how your site is structured.

Unfortunately, individuals on the Internet around the world still do not yet have access to your content.

In the next unit, we'll move to the second step: taking the website you generated and publishing it to the rest of the world!
