In the summer of 2017, I switched from WordPress to Jekyll. Wordpress was working great - the only problem is copying the whole site from one domain to another. Jekyll files can be copied over to a new site easily. Also, the BibTeX integration is awesome.
Here’s the workflow I use: I locally build the site, then upload it to the server. At first, I was using GitHub pages, now I upload files to the Berkeley EECS server. The site is now live at https://people.eecs.berkeley.edu/~ykhan/.
- Edit files, then from windows bash run
jekyll serveto watch site at
http://127.0.0.1:4000/.I previously had issues in windows, if you have the same try this:
jekyll serve --force_polling
- Once done, do
- If you’re using GitHub pages: from git bash
git add -A,
git commit -m "comment", and finally
git push origin master
- Source files are in the sources branch. Site is at the master branch
- If you’re using a server:
scp -r _site/* firstname.lastname@example.org:public_html
