Making a Jekyll site
I wanted to make a portfolio, but a Rails or Sinatra site seemed like overkill. I decided it was a good opportunity to try making a static website using Jekyll and Github Pages.
I did some research and chose Jekyll Bootstrap as a base project. First I disabled the blog-related pages and figured out how to display my own pages in the navigation bar. After adding some content, I decided that having a blog isn’t a bad idea.
I’m still having a little trouble getting everything the way I want it, but it’s really easy and satisfying to be able to deploy to GitHub so easily.
