This guide will show you how to deploy a Jekyll site and get your domain set up.
Jekyll is a blog-aware, static site generator perfect for personal, project, or organization sites. To build an Jekyll site, start with a template:
Vercel is a platform for deploying the fastest Jekyll sites. You can deploy your site with zero configuration to the best frontend infrastructure.
Vercel has integrations for GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket to enable CI/CD for your Jekyll site with zero configuration. Then, you can run automated tests for performance and reliability on every push. Pull and merge requests are deployed instantly to a unique URL, accessible to your entire team.
After deploying, your new Jekyll site will get automatically assigned a
.vercel.app suffixed domain. You can then add a Custom Domain on your choice, either from a third-party or purchased through Vercel.
Please note that recent
Bundler versions (2.2.3+) started changing the way of deciding the installing platform (more details in this GitHub issue). Therefore, please run the following command locally in your project repository once, and commit the resulting
Gemfile.lock file to be able to deploy your project on Vercel:
bundle lock --add-platform x86_64-linux
This is important especially if you're developing your app on different platforms (e.g., macOS, Windows, etc) as Vercel's build environment uses Linux.
