I am experimenting running my Jekyll site in a Docker container. This is in Ubuntu on Windows under WSL2, though I don’t think that matters. The command I am using is
$ docker run --rm --volume="$PWD:/srv/jekyll" -p 4000:4000 -it jekyll/jekyll jekyll serve
That works, the site launches fine, I can browse to it locally, all that jazz. The issue I am running into is that the site only regenerates if I make changes to the html files in the root directory. If I change any of the CSS files, anything in any sub directories, etc, nothing happens. I can force it by changing and saving any file in the root directory though. Here’s the final output I get then the container is done building and all that.
