Jekyll is a static site generator that is open source and free. Jekyll may be used to create websites with robust and user-friendly navigation, much like a content management system (like Drupal and WordPress).
Without a database or any server-side code, Jekyll enables you to dynamically create a website or blog and then serve it statically.
This indicates that the finished product is quite effective, especially for blogs with large traffic, while typical dynamic blogging systems like WordPress require several tricks and optimization strategies to function well.
