Install Jekyll on Mac OSX
This article will show you how to install Jekyll on Mac OSX as well as some plugins for Jekyll that I find to be invaluable.
First, make sure that you have Homebrew installed. If you don't, you can install it as follows:
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
Now we'll install nodejs, jekyll and a series of really useful plugins for Jekyll:
brew install node sudo gem install jekyll s3_website jekyll-assets jekyll-minibundle jekyll-sitemap hash-joiner npm install uglify-js -g
You should be ready to get started at this point. You can test with:
jekyll new testsite cd testsite jekyll serve curl http://localhost:4000
Now open a browser and go to http://localhost:4000. That's it! You're ready to generate some awesome static sites.comments powered by Disqus
