An overview on static websites with Jekyll

It’s a common practice starting a custom blog using one of the hundred CMS/CMF available out there. Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla are just the most popular names, and all of them share interesting features like:

  • working well out of the box;
  • customizations through external modules;
  • no programming skills required (at least for basic usage);
  • a wide selection of themes;
  • a large community ready to help.
