4.1 Conclusion

I wanna take this opportunity to thank you for coming along with me on this journey into the world of Jekyll and GitHub Pages. I hope that this process has been beneficial and entertaining for you. And I hope it started to spark that little bit of creativity in the back of your mind once again. Maybe you had that blog idea, maybe you had that content-driven website idea. And you just didn't do it because you didn't wanna spend the money. Or you didn't really want to be bothered with having to learn all of the HTML and CSS and JavaScript that would allow you to actually create something that looked good. Well, now you have the ability and the knowledge of how to go about creating a GitHub Pages site with Jekyll, with custom themes, to make the site look good with very little to no code whatsoever. So you can just focus on the content and delivering what your audience wants, and that is worth its weight in gold. So before I let you go, I wanna leave you with a couple of resources. The first one is the minimal mistakes configuration guide, once again. I know we've looked at this a lot over the duration of this course. But it's incredibly powerful and it's always changing because the author is maintaining this theme regularly, so definitely keep checking back. See all the changes that are being made, see what you can take advantage, to continue to customize your site to make it stand out from the rest. So definitely bookmark this page, it will be very important for you. Also, as you continue to dig a little bit deeper into the world of customization and understanding how Jekyll works and other things that you can do with it. I would definitely bookmark the Jekyllrb.com website, as this has a lot of really great material. Because all of these GitHub Pages with Jekyll are based on Jekyll, you should really understand the fundamentals of it. So as you continue to progress and get more ideas and build more of these websites. You will be armed with all of the knowledge necessary to really take your site to the next level. So once again, I wanna thank you for coming along with me on this journey. My name is Derek Jensen, and I can't wait to see you next time.
