Welcome to this Tuts+ course on building static websites with Jekyll. My name’s Guy Routledge and in this course we’re going to learn all about the Jekyll static site generator and build a whole website together from scratch.
Throughout this course we’ll be creating a web designer’s portfolio theme. This will feature blog posts—each with custom data, tags and categories—as well as examples of our work and a couple of pages where we can show off our skills and tell potential clients all about who we are and what we do.
We’ll cover a number of different web technologies throughout this course, including:
- Jekyll (of course)
- Markdown for writing our blog posts
- Liquid for building the page templates
- Sass for styling
- git for version control and deploying our completed site to GitHub pages for free hosting
