Jekyll is an open-source content management system (CMS) used to build static websites. The platform works by processing plain text files in Markdown, Liquid, HTML or other formats and transforming them into a static website that can be served on most web servers. It is designed for simplicity and speed, without the need for databases to manage dynamic content. Jekyll follows the principle of decoupling the front end from the back end, allowing developers to focus on building visually appealing user interfaces while providing smooth workflows for managing various types of content in web development projects. The platform's lightweight structure makes it easy to integrate with existing hosting services and version control systems like GitHub Pages.
