Create a blog site
For blogging, we have to specify a local folder as the root of your blog site with the commands below:
cd [your local folder] jekyll new .
As one of the results of running ‘Jekyll new .’, the skeleton of your blog site with a sample blog is created in the specified folder.
Running your blog site
Theoretically Jekyll is all set and you’re supposed to host your sample site with Jekyll management process right now.
Try the command below:
If you are able to see similar messages as below, you are lucky:
Configuration file: C://Blog/_config.yml
Incremental build: disabled. Enable with –incremental
done in 1.413 seconds.
Please add the following to your Gemfile to avoid polling for changes:
gem ‘wdm’, ‘>= 0.1.0’ if Gem.win_platform?
Auto-regeneration: enabled for ‘C://Blog’
Configuration file: C:/**/Blog/_config.yml
Server address: http://127.0.0.1:4000/
Server running… press ctrl-c to stop.
it says your sample site is being served at : http://127.0.0.1:4000/
Check it with your browser:
However, I am not a lucky guy most of time :(
The 1st time I run
jekyll serve, I got errors below:
require': cannot load such file -- bundler (LoadError) from C:/Ruby23/lib/ruby/2.3.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:inrequire’

Bundler is a gem dependency of Jekyll which is supposed to be installed with Jekyll. Apparently, it’s not. After installing Bundler with the command bellow, I got rid of above errors:
gem install bundler
But another dependency that is also supposed to be installed with Jekyll came out:

Finally, my blog site is able to be served successfully after I installed the dependency ‘minima’.
in some case ,you must change gem source
gem sources --add http://gems.ruby-china.org/ --remove https://rubygems.org/
congig bundle miroor
bundle config mirror.https://rubygems.org http://gems.ruby-china.org
then excute bundle command
now, find a nather error
