This is the final installation in my three part attempt to get up and running with Jekyll and Github Pages. Part 1 recounted my wrangling with Ruby, Part 2 outlined the missteps I took while getting Jekyll to run, and this will be my overview of Github Pages.
Yesterday I wrote about getting started with Jekyll, which was really just recounting my difficulties getting Ruby set up and configured correctly. Once Ruby was configured and the Jekyll gem installed, I assumed that it would be a fairly straightforward process. It wasn’t. But it probably should have been.
This was supposed to be a post complaining about the standards, or lack thereof, applied by ThemeForest, to the Wordpress Themes they well. As I went to write it I noticed that TinyPress.co’s SSL certificate had expired, so it seemed as good a time as any to dive into Jekyll and handle this static blogging with Github Pages myself.
I want to blog, but never actually do. So I’m starting.
