Zero to Hosted Jekyll Blog in 3 Minutes
1 - Create a New Repository
Go to your https://github.com and create a new repository named USERNAME.github.com

$ git clone https://github.com/plusjade/jekyll-bootstrap.git USERNAME.github.com $ cd USERNAME.github.com $ git remote set-url origin firstname.lastname@example.org:USERNAME/USERNAME.github.com.git $ git push origin master
3 - Profit
After GitHub has a couple minutes to do its magic your blog will be publicly available at http://USERNAME.github.com
*Already have your blog on GitHub?
I'll assume you have the Jekyll gem installed on your local machine. Run Jekyll-Bootstrap-Core locally to see what all the fuss is about:
$ git clone https://github.com/plusjade/jekyll-bootstrap.git $ cd jekyll-bootstrap $ jekyll --server
See it in action at http://localhost:4000.

My New Project
http://ruhoh.com is the Universal Static Blog Generator.
ruhoh is simpler, faster, and language agnostic.
ruhoh is made for technical blogging and will be developed at lightning speed.
Conversely, GitHub depends on Jekyll to run GitHub Pages and development has plateaued.
Thank You! If you like JB, please give ruhoh a try!
