Static Site Generators

Static sites are generally faster than dynamic sites, hence the popularity of static site generators. GitHub pages make use of the Jekyll static site generator. Visit Jamstock to check the list of popular static site generators.

To change the theme to time-machine, edit the _config.yml file and modify the theme to:

theme: jekyll-theme-time-machine
