You're up and running!
For instructions refer https://github.com/barryclark/jekyll-now. This will help you link your github account to the blog. No need of Jekyll on your local machine, as github takes care of it all. However, if you want to develop blog locally there are few gotchas.
Ruby on OS X
After spending an hour with my pre-installed, root owned version of Ruby and Gems, I moved to rvm.
Install gpg2 with Homebrew -
brew install gnupg gnupg2
Install rvm - https://rvm.io/
Ruby on Ubuntu
Same instructions should work fine.
gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 \curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
If you see an error:
curl: (77) error setting certificate verify locations: CAfile: /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt CApath: none
sudo apt-get install ca-certificates sudo mkdir -p /etc/pki/tls/certs sudo ln -s /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
You might need to install following gems
gem install jekyll gem install jekyll-sitemap gem install jekyll-feed
That’s it. Add
source ~/.rvm/scripts/rvm to your .bashrc file and hopefully you’d be able to use jekyll on your local machine seamlessly.
