Note: I no longer use Jekyll for my blog.
A lot’s been written about Jekyll, but coming from a Python background and knowing virtually nothing about the Ruby ecosystem, I had no idea how to do Ruby virtual environments and install Ruby dependencies. I suppose I’ll learn more about that as I need to. In the meantime, I just wanted to get up-and-running with Jekyll and be able to build my environment from my website’s Github repo.
I documented how I did this in my website’s Github repository’s README, so check it out. Hopefully this will save you time getting going with Jekyll, and also allow you to easily re-create your environment on other machines.
