Any chance Jekyll 4 will have speed enhancements for build process? I love Jekyll and Liquid but on some larger sites it take forever to build. Just curious…
@bgarrant Yes. Jekyll 4 will bring performance improvements.
If you’d like to take it for a test-drive:
- Edit your site’s Gemfile as follows:
gem "jekyll", :git => "https://github.com/jekyll/jekyll.git", :branch => "master"
- Install the dependencies
Disclaimer: Jekyll 4.0 is still under development and includes breaking-changes
That is great to hear. I am excited to try this out!

Based on the other topics, one might exptect a 15-40% lower build time.
Here’s an example of a refactored Jekyll website (around 1000 posts and pages) using current
master, with 2000% improvement:
|1 - Before||1337,872s|
|2 - Switch to liquid-c||1509,997s|
|3 - Remove LSI||1264,981s|
|4 - Switch to CommonMark||1282,607s|
|5 - Switch to master||64,94s|
