Jekyll is a simplistic software package compiled in Ruby. Created by the co-founder of GitHub,[1] it is released as open source under the terms of the MIT license. Although primarily a blog publishing software,[1] due to its option for in-page (including section) editing, Jekyll also functions as a great wiki engine. Jekyll is able to render by utilising Markdown or Textile and Liquid templates,[1] and requires no database for storage, instead supports loading content from YAML, JSON, comma-separated value (CSV), and tab-separated values (TSV) files.[2]

Jekyll can be customised by way of CSS, including Bootstrap, and semantic functions. Sites created in Jekyll can also be connected to cloud-based CMS software such as CloudCannon, Forestry, Netlify, or Siteleaf; and this also enables editors to modify site content without having to know how to code. Notably, Jekyll is the software engine used by GitHub Pages from GitHub, Inc.[3]

Jekyll is sponsored by the Open Collective.[1]
