New: Jekyll tutorials!

Alt Text

We recently released the first batch of our Jekyll tutorials! You can see them on our Jekyll Basics topic page.

What is Jekyll?

Jekyll is a static site generator, which means it's a tool that makes it easier to build static sites. When building a multi-page static site using just HTML, you end up with a lot of code you have to repeat on each page (if each page is using the same general layout). Jekyll, on the other hand, lets you reuse code by creating common layouts and template parts that can be used with each page, without having to copy and paste large chunks of code.

Before You Start

To get the most out of these tutorials, you should be familiar with HTML, CSS, Sass, and the terminal (though you don't have to be an expert at all of them). Luckily for you, we have tutorials for all of these topics! Check out our home page for links to all of our tutorials.


Let us know what you think of these tutorials in the comments below! We'll be adding more Jekyll tutorials soon.
