Installing Jekyll on CentOS 7

Having recently move to Jekyll as my blogging platform, I thought I would take a quick look at how easy it is to get going on Linux.

Installation on CentOS 7 is very straight forward. First add the EPEL repository for CentOS 7 as this is where you will find the nodejs rpm

sudo yum install

Install the required packages, note npm is not required but handy to have around.

sudo yum install nodejs npm ruby ruby-devel rubygems git
gem install jekyll

Start using Jekyll.

jekyll new my-awesome-site
cd my-awesome-site/
jekyll serve
