Do I need Jekyll serve to work in order to host my code?

Jekyll serve is not working, keep receiving error message and I don't know how to fix it. So do I need it to be able to connect in order to host my code. Is this something I can ignore? Guil Hernandez

Hi casthrademosthene,

I also just read that the latest version of Jekyll (3.2.1) has lots of fixes for Windows. Take a look here. Which version are you currently running? :)

It kept downloading the 3.2.0 version but somebody on gitter showed me how to uninstall the 3.2.0 version and install the 3.1.6 version and now it's working. So thank you for looking more into it and finding a solution with the 3.2.1 version because I didn't know it was available. I'll go read it and try it out. Thank you again, Guil Hernandez

Hi casthrademosthene,

To preview your site in the browser locally, you'll need to run the server. But you can also run a build of your site, which you can then upload to a server or GitHub pages, using jekyll build.

Have you watched the workshop I created on building a Jekyll site on GitHub?

"You can build a Jekyll website without having to install Ruby and Jekyll on your computer; or without using the command line and Git. You can get a Jekyll site up and running on the web by simply using the tools provided on github.com."

Hope this helps. :)

Guil Hernandez I haven't got to that video yet, I'm on the creating a project with jekyll video, but I'm happy to hear that jekyll serve is not mandatory and I'll watch go watch the Jekyll site on Github video now and use the jekyll build instead command. Thank you for the quick response
