Npm install jekyll?

I can see that the node package for Jekyll is still on 3.0 and has not been updated in five years. Is there a reason for this?

Jekyll is a Ruby app. Not sure what the npm module is. Did someone port it to Node? That would explain why it’s not been updated in years as I doubt it’s from Jekyll proper.

I’m believe @javag97 is referring to this NPM package:

It looks like it is just a packaging of the regular Ruby Jekyll 3.0.0-beta1. Although NPM was created for JavaScript, it can be used as a generic package manager, much like Homebrew or dpkg/APT.

NPM packages can be created by anyone, so I don’t believe there is any connection with the official Jekyll project.
