This is my first blog post!
It’s been quite some time that I wanted to start it but I never had the energy to do it.
After a quick search on blog engines, I decided to give a try to Jekyll, since it is integrated with github pages and is very simple to use. I followed their tutorial and Bam!
$ sudo gem install jekyll Building native extensions. This could take a while... ERROR: Error installing jekyll: ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension. /usr/bin/ruby1.9.1 extconf.rb /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require': cannot load such file -- mkmf (LoadError) from /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/custom_require.rb:36:in `require' from extconf.rb:1:in `<main>' Gem files will remain installed in /var/lib/gems/1.9.1/gems/fast-stemmer-1.0.2 for inspection. Results logged to /var/lib/gems/1.9.1/gems/fast-stemmer-1.0.2/ext/gem_make.out
It didn’t work on my computer… and since i’m a lazy person, I get tired really fast when things don’t work like expected.
In 3 steps, this blog was on:
# Added alias to use 'jekyll' command easily $ echo alias jekyll=\'sudo docker run --rm -v \"\$PWD:/src\" -p 4000:4000 grahamc/jekyll\' >> ~/.bash_aliases # Create a blog in 'blog' directory $ jekyll new blog $ cd blog # Serve the blog on http://localhost:4000 and automatically reload on file changes $ jekyll serve --watch
This was painless for me, as someone else already had a jekyll correctly installed and working in a docker environment.
Thanks Graham Christensen!
I now use the official docker image, and I made a Makefile that you can reuse :
There are 2 commands:
testwill serve on port 4000 with drafts enabled
deploywill build everything, commit it on master for gh-pages, waiting for you to push
