How to host a Jekyll site on Aerobatic

When deploying a Jekyll site to Aerobatic using the Bitbucket add-on

Step-by-step guide

  1. Edit your Jekyll blog on your machine
  2. From the command line on your machine, run jekyll serve to build the static assets
  3. Push your repo to Bitbucket. Make sure to include the _site folder
  4. Link your repo to Aerobatic. Make sure the deploy directory is _site


Make sure that in your gitignore file, you comment out or remove _site. This is the folder where Jekyll generates your actual site, and since we'll be hosting this via Bitbucket, you'll want to commit those files to Bitbucket too.

A tutorial on hosting Jekyll blogs can be found on the Aerobatic blog.
