jekyll-tasks

npm version

A set of gulp tasks and boilerplate setup for Jekyll projects

What is it?

This is an opinionated Jekyll setup that takes a gulp instance and registers gulp tasks related to running Jekyll projects.

Installation:

npm install jekyll-tasks --save

Requirements:

  • Gulp
  • Node.js >= v4
  • Ruby
  • Jekyll

Optional:

  • jekyll-feed gem (simply remove it from your config if you do not want it)
  • jekyll-paginate gem (simply remove it from your config if you do not want it)

Features:

  • Project setup
  • Browser Sync and Local Dev server
  • Sass, Autoprefixer, and minification of CSS
  • Webpack and Babel

Usage:

To use this library, pass in your "gulp" instance in your gulpfile.js to jekyll-tasks

let gulp = require('gulp');
require('jekyll-tasks')(gulp);

Once you do this, you can use the following


Primary Tasks:

  • gulp setup-project - Initializes your project src code in a directory called src. The directory structure looks like
src\
    _drafts\
    _includes\
    _js\
        index.js (this is the Webpack entry point)
    _layouts\
    _plugins\
    _posts\
    _scss\
        var\
        src\
        main.scss (this is the Sass entry point)
    builds\ (compiled resources)
    static\
        font\
        images\
    _config.yml
    .editorconfig
    404.html
    archive.html
    index.html

You should add the following to your .gitignore after your project is set up

_site
src/builds
  • gulp dev - Launches your development server and begins watching your files
  • gulp build - Builds your site

Other Tasks (these shouldn't need to be used normally):

  • gulp jekyll-build - Builds your jekyll site into _site
  • gulp jekyll-build:drafts - Same as jekyll-build but with drafts included
  • gulp jekyll-rebuild - Same as jekyll-build:drafts but reloads the page
  • gulp browser-sync - Launches a browser-sync server
  • gulp sass - Compiles the development version of your CSS
  • gulp sass:prod - Same as the previous but the CSS is minified
  • gulp webpack:dev - Compiles the development version of your Javascript
  • gulp webpack:prod - Compiles the production version of your Javascript
  • gulp watch - Watches your file system for changes and executes the appropriate task

Options:

You can pass in an options object to overwrite defaults and set deployment information.

let gulp = require('gulp');
let options = {};
require('jekyll-tasks')(gulp, options);
  • options.webpackDevConfig - Development Webpack Config. See the source code for the default config
  • options.webpackProdConfig - Production Webpack Config. See the source code for the default config
