This blog is created with Jekyll. So, here is how to install and use jekyll.

I will be using Ubuntu 16.04 for this tutorial.


  1. Ruby
  2. RubyGems

If you want to install jekyll 2 or earlier versions you will also need NodeJs or another JavaScript runtime, and Python 2.7 . But for this tutorial there’s no need to install Node or python 2.7

Ruby Installation

Install ruby

$ sudo apt install ruby

Install ruby-dev

$ sudo apt install ruby-dev

Jekyll Installation

After Ruby installation is complete, now we can install jekyll with the following command.

$ sudo gem install jekyll

Create First Jekyll Project

when the jekyll installation complete, we need to create a new jekyll project

$ sudo jekyll new first-jekyll-project

now change the working directory

$ cd first-jekyll-project

build and run jekyll

$ jekyll serve

go to http://localhost:4000 to view your jekyll generated blog.
