I’m the developer of the Jekyll Template JekyllOne, a free to use and fully configurable Theme based on the CSS framework Bootstrap V5. The Theme JekyllOne is designed for more complex websites presenting a larger number of posts and pages. The use case for JekyllOne is focusing on larger websites. That does not mean smaller sites couldn’t use it, but the configuration work may be too time-consuming. In such cases, I recommend using more lightweight templates available for Jekyll.
Find below, in my option, the best free and lightweight themes for Jekyll using the CSS framework Bootstrap as well.
