Jekyll is a static website generator you can use for developing simple websites. If you are running Jekyll on your desktop, you can view your static website by running a local server. If you want the leave the web server up and running in the background all the time, you can run this command instead.
# normally you run this command jekyll serve # running it in the background jekyll serve > /dev/null 2>&1 & # add incremental which builds only deltas jekyll serve --incremental > /dev/null 2>&1 &
To kill the server, run the following.
# find jekyll server process ps -ef | grep jekyll # substitute pid# with process id kill -9 pid#
