Jekyll isn’t quite as “click a couple of buttons and you have a website” as Squarespace, so I’ve been gradually building mine up from
gem install jekyll onwards. The documentation in some areas seems to be lacking - I’ve actually been doing a tiny bit of work on the code, and that’s helped immeasurably in teaching me how it works.
It seems there’s not a huge amount of documentation out there on how, for example, plugins and generators and pages work together1, so I’m going to see if I can put up some tutorials, documentation, what-have-you over the next month or so, in the hope that I can ease others into the transition.
For the moment, however, I’m going to just let this sit here and hope nothing breaks.
Either that or I completely suck at googling for it. Let’s not discount this as an option. ↩
