Jekyll is highly regarded amongst the developer community for creating sleeky, minimalist and easy to navigate websites. It's widely used in conjunction with Github pages and most of the basic themes are included as an option when you create a repository.
I've previously set up a minimal portfolio website using Jekyll before. Part of me feels as though the portfolio should show your talents and creating it purely from HTML/CSS or even using a React of Django framework speaks to this more than using Jekyll. In the midst of changing up my portfolio and blog, I would like to ask the question - Is using Jekyll to create your online developer website "cheating" so to speak?
Or is it just as good of a medium for showcasing your skills and projects?
I guess this question also needs to take into question the purpose of the portfolio/blog. For instance, is the same level of development needed for someone showcasing their talents as a DevOps Engineer vs a Frontend or Full stack developer?
