Jekyll is a static site generator written in Ruby. With Jekyll, you can transform your plain text into static websites or blogs. No more database, and cumbersome updates and install, simply focus on your content. In Jekyll, permalinks categories, pages, posts, and custom layouts are factored into the design, so you can get started writing content, right away. For layouts and template, Jekyll uses the Liquid templating language which allow you to design and structure a site to your liking. In a nutshell Markdown, Liquid, HTML and CSS goes in, and out comes a static site ready for deployment.
