Introduction to the JekyllEx app.

(Docs are incomplete yet. If you need specific help, please create an issue on the app's repository.)

Welcome to the official documentation of the JekyllEx app. In this article you will understand what JekyllEx is and why did I make it.

For understanding what JekyllEx does, one needs to know what Jekyll is.

What is Jekyll?

Here's what the Jekyll's official GitHub repository says:

Jekyll is a simple, blog-aware, static site generator perfect for personal, project, or organization sites. Think of it like a file-based CMS, without all the complexity. Jekyll takes your content, renders Markdown and Liquid templates, and spits out a complete, static website ready to be served by Apache, Nginx or another web server.

In simple terms, Jekyll removes all the hassle of a CMS(like WordPress, ghost, etc.) and gives you the freedom to write simple markdown text, and converts that into a static site!

The best part is, since Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub Pages, you can host the static site on GitHub Pages for free. It is as simple as putting the Jekyll project on GitHub and configuring Gh-Pages, which is really simple!

But the problem is, many people aren't aware of how to use Jekyll, because of the high learning curve. A normal user needs to know some we dev and be able to understand web lang like HTML, CSS, etc.

How does JekyllEx help?

JekyllEx solves the above problem by providing an intuitive UI based App to create/edit and manage your Jekyll blog posts directly from your mobile device!

The further articles in this documentation will walk you through how you can use the app.
