Deploy a Jekyll site.
Jekyll is an open-source framework for creating websites, based around Markdown with Liquid templates. In this guide, you will create a new Jekyll application and deploy it using Youappz Sitez. You use the
jekyll CLI to create a new Jekyll site.
Jekyll is written in Ruby, meaning that you will need a functioning Ruby installation, like
rbenv, to install Jekyll.
To install Ruby on your computer, follow the
rbenv installation instructions and select a recent version of Ruby by running the
rbenv command in your terminal:
$ rbenv install 2.7.2
With Ruby installed, you can install the
jekyll Ruby gem:
$ gem install jekyll
Creating a new project
With Jekyll installed, you can create a new project running the
jekyll new in your terminal:
$ jekyll new my-jekyll-site
Create a base
index.html in your newly created folder to give your site content:
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8" /> <title>Hello from Youappz Sitez</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hello from Youappz Sitez</h1> </body> </html>
Optionally, you may use a theme with your new Jekyll site if you would like to start with great styling defaults. For example, the
minimal-mistakes theme has a "Starting from
jekyll new" section to help you add the theme to your new site.
Deploying with Youappz Sitez
Deploy your site to Sitez by running the following commands
cd my-jekyll-site appz create -n my-jekyll-site appz deploy -d _site
In less than 30 seconds your website will be deployed to an https URL on our global CDN.
For the complete guide to deploying your first site to Youappz Sitez, refer to the Get started guide.
After deploying your site, you will receive a unique subdomain for your project on
Every time you deploy your Gatsby site, Youappz Sitez will automatically rebuild your project and deploy it. You will also get access to preview deployments on every deploy, so you can preview how changes look to your site before deploying them to production.
