Building a website with Github and Jekyll
Aug 20, 2015
#docker #jekyll #github ]
After a long time of www.ecliptik.com being offline I finally brought it back online with Github Pages. I really like the concept of having a static site using Markdown files and a template to quickly bring online a modern looking blog without the hassle of configuring a content management system, web server, or database.
While building the site, I created a Dockerfile to make viewing the site locally before pushing to Github. The container image ecliptik/jekyll built from this Dockerfile is also on Docker Hub.
