Building Static Websites With Jekyll and Hugo
$19.99 Track price
Welcome to this 2 in 1 course where you will learn how to create static websites with Jekyll and Hugo. Both are awesome static website generators.
In this course, we’ll start by walking through how Jekyll works, installing Jekyll and then we’ll build a fully functioning site with content.
We’ll then get into Hugo where you’ll learn how to install Hugo and have a website up and running.
With Jekyll or Hugo you can build a blog, a portfolio, or any website, without having to depend on a database or content management system. That’s because these two static site generators do not require setting up a complex application on a web server like WordPress.
With Jekyll or Hugo static site generators you can help you build a simple website fast without any plugins or advanced programming. In fact, you can build a website much cheaper, faster and more secure than those built with platforms such as WordPress.
With this course you’ll learn how to get up and running with either Jekyll or Hugo. You’ll learn how to choose templates, add pages and posts, and build your site.
By the end, you’ll know how to create a static website with the platform you choose, with either Jekyll or Hugo.

excellent course. I have a better understanding of setting up Jekyll now and will be using it for my next website project. Thank you
Fritz Kim –
We can learn the basic of jekyll and sass skill through this course Step by Step. but the speach is little fast for me.
If you want to learn jekyll and make real professional websites from scratch this is the course for you. Awesome job from Guy!
Beth Wall –
It gives you the basics quickly and clearly.

It is a nice demo of crafting a site in Jekyll with Github. The ratio Jekyll and styling is somewhat out of balance in the beginning, but the source files can help out here mos of the times. The files of the completed demo project differ sometimes from what you’re seeing in the video. Overall one gets a basic understanding of the structure and functioning of a Jekyll site. There is unfortuntely no attention for a setup in Windows. A bad introduction to this course is that there are no answers to the questions of the students.

I have given only 3 stars because I’m getting sick and tired of MIA eachers on Udemy that think that producing a course here is just another source of passive income for them! This eacher hasn’t replied to one question/query since it was published… Anyways… the course itself is based on an older version of Jekyll. If you install the latest (v3.2.1) you will have to Google to find out how to get it up and running regardless of your OS. If you’re on Windows then you really are on your own as he doesn’t even attempt to cover installation on Windows. Once you have Jekyll installed and working, the course is a gentle intro to the basics of Jekyll. Personally I think the last lesson ( a css widget) could have been dropped and a bit more Jekyll could have been taught, collections for example. Also missing were quizes/tests, it was basically a monkey see monkey do type of course. It’s a shame really, as the delivery of the course was worth 5 stars…

this course is totally unusable with jekyll 3. if you follow along you will only get frustrated having to go and figure everything out for yourself.
Hildegard McNicoll –
excellent presentation, very clear.
Terry Dunn –
so far so good

February 2017: Excellent intro but out of date. The default Jekyll setup does not give the same files or directory structure described in the course so it’s impossible to follow along exactly. So I took another course Jekyll: make fast, secure static sites and blogs with Jekyll by Jana Bergant and found it much easier to follow and learn what I needed to know. Scored it 5/5.
Fivefold Development –
Good intro to jekyll. Helps you understand the fundamentals
Casadaro Shearrod –
There were times when I was a little confused about how everything was fitting together. Beyond that, I learned everything I needed to know about Jekyll.
Tadej Lorber –
Great quality but still it could be better if the course would be run on a windows computer not just a mac

Michael Connors –

This is a really good course on building a static site with Jekyll. It also shows basic (and some not so basic) SASS/CSS along the was as well as good version control workflow with git. Even though it’s a little old, it is still totally relevant and helpful. The instructor is quite engaging and easy to listen to. I learned a lot and, perhaps more importantly, got inspired by what I learned to go further with the subject matter. I highly recommend!
Lots of good info on getting up and running with Jekyll and Hugo

I started with the Hugo part of the instruction. So far all of the steps given in the instructions have been spot on. No errors, or surprises. This cuts down on the frustration level especially for begginers. Nothing is more frustrating than following instructions that do not work. This course has been very pleasant thus far.
Russ Urquhart –
Good overview and intro presentation.

I guess the class delivers what it promises, building static websites with Jekyll and Hugo. Be aware though that out of the 5,5 advertised hours, almost 3 are the old totally outdated legacy course. Now for the rest of the 2,5 hours, there’s a one hour basic tutorial on how to upload websites to the web (FTP/AWS /Netlify) that is basically the same for both Hugo and Jekyll. Which leaves about 20 minutes each on both Hugo and Jekyll itself. No code along project, no advanced use cases, just plain his is how you install it, this is how you use a theme and this is how you create a blog posting. If you’re a moderately advanced user who has published a static website before then there’s not a lot of added value.

A very basic and thus helpful course. If You don’t know anything about how to get Hugo or Jekyll to create Your page and deploy this page, this course is for You. Theming is cut a bit short most in this directions happens in the Jekyll Legacy Course, for Hugo missing. Also You will have to pause a lot, if You try to code along and keep up no code examples for download here (but that’s ok You want to learn, not how to copy paste). All in all for beginners a good start.
