I’ve gone through many valleys of tears using different CMS and blog systems. I’m somehow tired of all those heavyweighted systems, specially Wordpress. Currently I’m running a site with October CMS which is pretty neat but I’m still not 100% satisfied. I always wanted to turn to Jekyll, but something kept me always aways from it, but can’t tell what it was.
However, whenever I read something about Jekyll I always get Github pages as additional result. Do I necessarily have to use Github pages or is it just something optional? I still can’t figure out what’s the purpose of the combination Jekyll + Github pages.
Anyone can describe it to me?
