You're looking at it! This is my portfolio website written in Markdown, generated by Jekyll, and hosted on GitHub pages. Markdown Jekyll Liquid Python

Key Points


Why build websites when you can generate them? Add in free hosting and you’ve got a winner. At least this was my thinking when I made this thing.

Jekyll - a static site generator - allows me to write simple Markdown files which are automatically converted into static webpages when pushed to my GitHub pages repo.

Pages can be as simple as you like, but my implementation makes extensive use of Liquid templates to dynamically generate content - the list of my projects on the home page for instance.
