Setting Up Jekyll Test System (Serving github pages locally)


Following the instructions on github help plus some missing details.

clone site (in my case):

git clone

cd into the directory.

Now we need to install the goods.

First we need to install ruby:

sudo apt-get install ruby-full build-essential

Then check the version:

ruby -v

Then install Bundler to help reduce build errors:

gem install bundler

I did not set my original site up with a gem file so I had to create one (skip if you have a gem file):

bundle init

add github-pages gem to the newly created gemfile:

gem 'github-pages', group: :jekyll_plugins

Install the gems:

bundle install

Check the github-pages gem install:

bundle update github-pages

Serve locally:

bundle exec jekyll serve
