I installed jekyll and have everything setup, but there is no gemfile or gemfile.lock in my folder when I installed it. Are these files available somewhere in their default configs that I can manually put in?
You can just create a file in the root of your project with something like this:
source 'https://rubygems.org' gem 'jekyll'
When you run
bundle exec install it will create
Which command did you run in the terminal for creating the project?
Did you added
--blank flag in your command?
