See the blog post and video here:
Use Jekyll to generate static blogs.
Static web sites don't need any special server software, or databases. They're super-fast, and Jekyll gives you complete control over the output HTML.
You will learn how to:
* set up a HTML layout template
* write a post in Markdown
* build a index page with a list of posts
* set up an RSS feed
* extend Jekyll with plugins
* host your blog on GitHub Pages
