Adventures in Jekyll

As part of relearning both linux and nginx, I need to create and manage content on this site. For this I will be using the Jekyll static templating application to pre-generate the pages I serve. I will be using generated but static pages for two important reasons:

  1. Jekyll with automatically generate a large amount of the dull, tedious html that makes a modern website – even a toy one such as this. We all have better things to do with our lives than handcraft sitemap.xml files.
  2. Serving static pages does not require a CMS – with the associated security and resource issues that come with dynamic content.
