I just started blog with Jekyll using Github Pages. First impressions (of Jekyll and Github pages):

  • nice scaffolding via jekyll new,
  • missing fulltext search (workaround with Google search),
  • non-intuitive tagging of posts (would use custom plugins or a workaround, I’ll have to check it once more),
  • not possible to easily obtain last modification time of a post/page (thought it’s present in the Git history).
