Hi community,
I am new to Jekyll and I would like to know how much time a pro needs to install it and to connect it to an URL. Some freelancers I asked, said, that it might take several hours. I cannot believe that. Therefore I would like to know your estimations.

Another problem of me is, that I do not have any glue about working with the command line. I am used to working on PHP driven CMSs, therefore I never use the command line. Do you have any link that teaches me stuff about the command line that might be useful for working with Jekyll? If I knew the basics of the command line, I would understand much more. :wink:

My first job on Jekyll will be to transfer a Photoshop design into some static HTML pages. I thought that HTML and CSS will be enough for doing this. OK, for installing HTML and CSS are not enough. :wink: But once Jekyll is installed and working: What will I need to know to write a design for static HTML pages? I know HTML, CSS, PHP and Javascript. will that be enough?

The time needed to install Jekyll depends on your network environment. It takes minutes or hours. But the instruction is very simple: Just run gem install jekyll in a terminal.

If you just want to create a static website, HTML & CSS are enough, I think.
