The 7 best free Jekyll themes of 2017

The 7 best free Jekyll themes of 2017

Jekyll is by far the easiest-to-use static website generator, along with Pelican and Hyde if you prefer Python. It’s not a secret that Github is one of the locomotives tracting the Ruby community and they didn’t choose Jekyll as their Github Pages generator out of the blue: it is crazy fast and highly reliable.

As a nice-to-have feature, you have pretty professional templates available for free and I try to save you some research type by listing 8 of them here.

For your information, if you are interested in going further with Jekyll, I suggest you also take a look at Poole, which is a Jekyll « overlay », but not in a negative sense.

All the themes presented here are responsive. And, so you know, this very blog run on Jekyll.
