Jekyll Generates Static Websites
To understand the differences and benefits of static vs dynamic websites,
follow this quick visual tutorial:
Free & Automatic Hosting
Free and Easy Blog Hosting With GitHub Pages.
Jekyll-bootstrap is 100% compatible with deploying to GitHub.
GitHub compiles your site on every update so you don't even have to run any code locally!
Just push your repository to a valid GitHub Pages endpoint and GitHub hosts your website <3.
Eases the Pain of Liquid
Liquid can be very frustrating to work with so JB does the job for you.
One of the hardest things about Jekyll is understanding and mastering the Liquid templating language.
JB ships with pre-built pages that would make you cry T_T to have to code manually in Liquid.
Backed by Twitter Bootstrap
Get the power of Twitter Bootstrap with minimal hassle.
Don't want Twitter Bootstrap? No problem, just install another theme.
Install and Switch Blog Themes With One Command.
Jekyll Bootstrap is the first Jekyll blogging engine to support modular theming.
This makes designing and sharing themes for Jekyll blogs much easier and automatic.
Browse Current Themes (new window)
Support For All Major Blog Comment Engines.
Installation is as easy as pasting in your account identifier.

Posts & Pages
Built-in Post and Page File Creation.
The following page stubs are built-in. Creating these pages manually is harder than you think!
Plus easily create post and page file stubs using Jekyll Bootstrap's built in rake tasks.
I don't regularly contribute to JB anymore.
If you are interested in being a core-contributor to Jekyll-bootstrap please email me: email@example.com.
I need help to manage the issues and pull requests piling up.
A Better Static Site Generator =P
http://ruhoh.com solves many frustrations found in Jekyll which results in the need for JB in the first place.
Develop Faster: Ruhoh does not compile your entire blog every time a change is made, only the changed page.
Native asset management: Ruhoh automatically cache-busts your assets in development and fingerprints them in production.
Thank You! It was inevitable I build my own static site generator! If you like JB, please give ruhoh a try!
