Recently, I was trying to install Jekyll on Windows on multiple computers and got frustrated with enormous amount of work I had to do.
If anyone of you have seen my earlier blogpost on Installing Jekyll on Windows , you would agree that it requires considerable amount of effort.
Hence, I decided to build a portable version of Jekyll for myself, which I could easily copy on multiple computers. The portable version contains everything which is required to run Jekyll on Windows:
- Ruby 2.0
- Ruby development Kit
- Git 1.8.3
- Python 2.7.5
You can download the Complete PortableJekyll package here from my dropbox link
It comes with following pre-installed gems including Jekyll 1.0.3
bigdecimal (1.2.0) classifier (1.3.3) colorator (0.1) commander (4.1.3) directory_watcher (1.4.1) fast-stemmer (1.0.2) highline (1.6.19) io-console (0.4.2) jekyll (1.0.3) json (1.7.7) kramdown (1.0.2) liquid (2.5.0) maruku (0.6.1) mini_portile (0.5.1) minitest (4.3.2) posix-spawn (0.3.6) psych (2.0.0) pygments.rb (0.5.0) rake (0.9.6) rdoc (4.0.0) safe_yaml (0.7.1) syntax (1.0.0) test-unit (184.108.40.206) yajl-ruby (1.1.0)
There is a command prompt script which you might want to change
This script above sets the PATH variable so that jekyll can be exeucted from any directory.
