My Favorite Free Themes for Jekyll

Jekyll is a static site generator with a great built-in theme engine to get you started. While Jekyll is completely customizable, these themes make for a nice jumping-off point before fine tuning your site’s look.

I recommend Jekyll for blogging and simple websites as a low-cost alternative to Wordpress, which often is complicated to set up, complicated to update and has lots of unnecessary overhead. Simply put, Jekyll is easy, fast, and free.

Jekyll has loads of free themes that can be used for your next blog or personal site. Check out some of my favorites below, and click on any theme name to be taken to a demo page.
