Jekyll Docker

Jekyll is a blog-aware static site generator in Ruby

Image Types

  • jekyll/jekyll: Default image.
  • jekyll/minimal: Very minimal image.
  • jekyll/builder: Includes tools.

Standard

$ echo $UID
1001
docker run --rm \
  --volume="$PWD/jekyll:/srv/jekyll" \
  --name jekyll \
  -e JEKYLL_UID=1001 \
  -e JEKYLL_GID=1001 \
  -p 4000:4000 \
  -it jekyll/jekyll:4.0 \
  jekyll build

Server

For local development, Jekyll can be run in server mode inside the container. It will watch for changes, rebuild the site, and provide access through its included web server. You can then check the results of changes by reloading http://localhost:4000/ in a browser.

docker run --rm \
  --volume="$PWD/jekyll:/srv/jekyll" \
  --name jekyll \
  -e JEKYLL_UID=1001 \
  -e JEKYLL_GID=1001 \
  -p 4000:4000 \
  -d jekyll/jekyll:4.0 \
  jekyll serve
