I think it’s a great guide, but the suggested plugin seems to have three failing build that make me wondering if it is convenient to use it?

Wow that’s so complicated.

To debug a plugin, I usually just add a string parameter to it which I plop into an eval in the plugin’s render method.

This way I can just plug in my Ruby code into this param and watch the browser live refresh like I usually do when developing in Jekyll… When I’m happy with the code… copy and paste that string into the plugin. Done!
