Why Jekyll?

Lean and efficient

Simple to set up and use, Jekyll’s straightforward conventions and its focus on HTML, CSS, and Markdown mean you can create content quickly. No bloat and complexity compared to other frameworks.

Large ecosystem

Jekyll has a great number of easy-to-use plugins for the most common use cases, such as SEO and sitemaps. There’s also hundreds of high-quality themes available from a large, long-standing community.

Battle proven

Jekyll is a mature, much-loved framework, which means it’s been used, tested, and developed into a rock-solid solution. If you get stuck somewhere, chances are the community already has the answer.
