Every week, I share a side-project I made in 1 day.

As I’ve been doing some hard-core back-end tasks at work (i.e. developing a distributed web crawler in Node.js and deploying it on Google Kubernetes Engine), I enjoy experimenting with pure front-end sites when I have some spare time.

Jekyll makes it fun to craft static websites ⛏
Lately I’ve been having a lot of fun with Jekyll, and sharing my learning on
In a nutshell, here are some reasons why I love Jekyll:
  • it relies a lot on Markdown and YAML, too markup formats that I enjoy using everyday
  • it’s quite powerful yet simple to create typical website structures using a bunch of templates, layouts and data files
  • it’s natively supported by GitHub Pages => free hosting 😎
If you’ve never tried it, I recommend to at least see a few examples of what you can do with it!
Feel free to have a look at one of my tutorials, listed above!
