Deploy a Jekyll Static Site

You can deploy a Jekyll static site on Render in under a minute. Your site is served over a lightning-fast global CDN, comes with fully managed TLS certificates, and supports custom domains out of the box.

The sample app for this quick start is deployed at https://jekyll.onrender.com.

  1. Use your existing Jekyll repository, or fork our sample Jekyll repo on GitHub or GitLab.

  2. Create a new Static Site on Render, and give Render permission to access your new repo.

  3. Use the following values during creation:

    Build Commandbundle exec jekyll build
    Publish Directory_site

That’s it! Your app will be live on your Render URL as soon as the build finishes.

Additional Notes

See Specifying a Ruby Version if you need to customize the version of Ruby used for your app.
