I wanted to try an interesting project called Jekyll – a static page generator. It consumes content in textual form like Markdown or Textile, Liquid templates, and HTML and CSS to generate static pages and blogs.
I should be able to install it with simple command:
$ gem install jekyll
But it wasn’t successful. What I’m going to do?
Good news for me is that I work on a project called Fedora Developer Portal! And there is a repo for content with the Ruby section already created. It explains how to install Ruby, Gems, etc. I used that information and successfully installed Jekyll on my machine.
That’s one of the purposes of our new portal – to help people start with new (new for them) technology on Fedora.
First Prototype is Here!
Please keep in mind that this is just a prototype that offers very limited content and functionality. The content is not final and will change according to your feedback and ideas 🙂
