I’ve been using Jekyll and a third-party theme since August 2018 to publish my blog using GitHub Pages. I truly enjoy the fact that it’s a static site and is built using easy-to-understand markdown. I’m no Jekyll Pro, but I have modified the theme a bit and created my own data file for a particular page.
A few months ago, I was asked to participate in a blog event and needed to schedule the publication of a couple posts. At the time, I didn’t have spare time to make that happen, so I dutifully pushed my drafts at odd hours and lost a bit of sleep.
I did, however, discover a GitHub Action called Jekyll Publish Drafts. Over the last few days, I finally spent the time to get this working and have written a post about it.
If you use GitHub Pages for your Jekyll site and need to schedule the publication of a post at a specific time, check out my post Publish a Post for a Jekyll Site on a Schedule.
I welcome comments or suggestions. Just leave them here, in the post comments, or on Twitter (same handle as here).
