Jekyll Showcase! - Share your sites built with Jekyll


I blog about Jekyll, Linux, and open source.

I use a modified clouldcannon Jekyll theme


Jinx (Excel Java Add-In) -

Jinx is an Excel Java Add-In for writing user defined functions, menus and macros for Excel in Java. The site is developed using Jekyll, which was chosen to simplify generating new content and managing the documentation parts of the site with a professional theme.

The search feature is implemented by the jekyll-lunr-js-search plugin. I also wrote a small plugin to make it easier to reference the auto-generated javadocs from the markdown.


Daniel Brinneman -

WordPress theme designer and photographer. Blog monthly. First site with Jekyll.


Karaoke Mugen -

An open-source karaoke manager/player with a song database.
I learned Jekyll for this. Two notable features on the site are its i18n (english and french) as well as its data index of karaoke songs (click on “Karaokes” in the top menu) which uses JSON generated by our database. Each update to the database generates new JSON and triggers a site rebuild. We used a data apge generator plugin to generate every karaoke/category/tag/year page and related data. There are still bugs to iron out though.

Link to repository

#112 - Company site: Inibii delivers energy analytics in energy management systems to drive energy efficiency in facility management to lower energy cost, specially electricity.

Built with template (Devoll - Multi-Purpose Theme). I went through lot of iterations to customize and features to the theme. Jekyll allows lot of abstraction, which makes it easy to develop and maintain. The site is deployed in AWS S3 using bitbucket pipeline continuous build and deploy.

The code repository is private.


Jekyll with Bootstrap -

A Jekyll website using bootstrap - Just a simple website I wanted to make to experiment with using Bootstrap along with Jekyll. I am just getting started with learning and doing Web Development, but came across Jekyll and for some reason I was really attracted to it and interesting in working with it and learning more about it. Along the way I’ve learned so much, I don’t know if I can include it all here. From what YAML is, to writing marking down, to push files to github, to importing sass, and so on.
