Hosting a Jekyll blog on Netlify via GitHub
So, after getting the blog onto Jekyll (see last post), next step was to get the hosting situation figured out. Before I used Jekyll I pushed changes into a Dropbox folder connected to fast.io, which served the website. I’ve now changed it up, since Jekyll requires a build process. Pushing to GitHub repository and Netlify takes it from there. You can follow step-by-step-instructions here.
It is incredibly smooth and simple this way. Just push to GitHub whenever there is a new post or change to publish, and that’s it.
Build time is a few minutes.
