Install Jekyll


To install Jekyll use the command:

sudo apt install jekyll

Now you can check what are the versions of Ruby and Jekyll:

ruby --version
jekyll --version

You can now go into your Jekyll project directory and do the following:

sudo gem install bundler
bundle install

And to run the Jekyll Server use the command:

bundle exec jekyll serve
