Jekyll + GitHub + lunr.js02 Jan 2016
This blog is built on three powerful tools, commonly used in the open source community:
Jekyll, the Ruby-based static page generator. Static pages are fast because there’s no database to hit.
GitHub, the collaboration tool for developers. Also useful for hosting and its content delivery network.
lunr.js, which gives visitors fast search capabilities. lunr.js is fast because search requests never hit the network. The entire search workflow happens in the browser.
Members of ChicagoRuby: North Shore gathered on Saturday, January 2, 2016 to share experiences and ideas with these key tools. Slides appear below.
