Using Jekyll, Asciidoctor and GitHub Pages for Static Site Creation

After I decided to start write things down, the first tool that I found for this task was Jekyll - a static site generator supported by GitHub Pages. It was very useful for creating the first version of this blog, but finally, I decided to use Grain (hope to present it in the following article). As a result of playing with Jekyll, in this article I will show how to build a simple blog using Jekyll as static site generator, GitHub Pages as static site server and Asciidoc as markdown language. We will create a blog from scratch, add new posts and change default configuration and web pages layout using mentioned technologies.
