Open Source
Jekyll is great for people who aren't intimidated by editing HTML, CSS, and Markdown files, people who are on a shoestring budget, and people who want a blazing fast website. Jekyll may not be the best option for people who aren't interested in editing their websites in a text file and would rather have a WordPress-esque back-end from the beginning.

As we have to show the highlights of our blogs in the main page of our website. We choose Live Center as here it is very easy to embed those blogs in the home page. Also, this embeding thing was done by content creator so we don't have to reach to developer always.

Jekyll is integrated into GitHub Pages, which made it an easy choice. Using Jekyll was also easier as there's not really a server or a database to configure and you can just get things started from day one. Running and verifying content changes locally for developers is super efficient as Jekyll runs locally, too.

  • Jekyll has kept our costs low, very low, on all the projects I've used on it. Think $10 a year low.
